WATCH our Vine on how to make this easy low carb recipe – Low carb spaghetti
- 1 small onion
- Pasta sauce (choose a low sugar low calorie option)
- Lean Grass Fed Organic Beef (roughly one pound)
- 3-4 zucchinis
Chop onion into fine pieces.
Warm a pan to cook ground beef. Turn to medium heat add beef and onions.
Then cook until the beef is brown and the onions are translucent.
Add pasta sauce and any other vegetables you like. We added extra zucchini to the sauces in chunks.
Next Use a julian slicer to get the stringy texture in the zucchini. Once sliced, steam zucchini until cooked (for a faster option you can microwave zucchini). You could also pan fry the zucchini with some spray olive oil.
Add your sauce to a heaping serving of zucchini and you have a low carb spaghetti recipe!
This low carb recipe is cheap, fast, and healthy. Fitness Tip: Sliced zucchini is also a great additive to other recipes so I like to keep prepped zucchini in the fridge for things like omelets and other vegetable dishes. Zucchini also keeps for long periods of time so it won’t spoil as fast as other veggies.
