I love pasta, but my waist line does not..
(can I get an AMEN?!)
In the mood for spaghetti and trying to cut the carbs out!? You MUST get a spiralizer! You can get them on Amazon or even at Walgreen or CVS in the as seen on TV section! I used mine to make zucchini and yellow squash noodles.. Same concept of pasta, zero carbs! Also works with carrots, cucumbers, etc.. but that’s another blog 😉
