Keto Spaghetti: A Low-Carb Pasta Alternative
Spaghetti is a classic dish that is loved by many, but it can be difficult to enjoy on a low-carbohydrate diet.
This keto spaghetti recipe provides a delicious alternative that fits into a ketogenic diet.
- 1 lb zucchini, cut into spaghetti-like strands
- 1/2 cup marinara sauce
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- Cut the zucchini into spaghetti-like strands using a spiralizer or a julienne peeler.
- In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil.
- Drain the excess fat from the skillet and add the marinara sauce, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.
- Add the zucchini noodles to the skillet and toss until they are coated with the sauce.
- Cook the zucchini noodles until they are tender, about 5-7 minutes.
- Serve hot with grated Parmesan cheese on top, if desired.
- Zucchini can be substituted with another type of low-carb noodles, such as spaghetti squash or shirataki noodles.
- Marinara sauce can be substituted with another type of pasta sauce, such as Alfredo or pesto.
- Add in some diced vegetables, such as bell peppers or mushrooms, for extra flavor and nutrition.
- Add some red pepper flakes for a spicy twist to the dish.
- Add ground beef, turkey, or chicken to it.
- The keto spaghetti can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
- To make the zucchini noodles firmer, you can pat them dry with paper towels before cooking.
- For a creamier sauce, add in some heavy cream or cream cheese.
- Always use a food thermometer to ensure that the internal temperature of the ground beef reaches 160°F. This will ensure that any potential bacteria have been destroyed.
