Instead of pasta, my friend Ninav from Calorie Count loves to substitute zucchini! Her method is so simple and accessible that it is a fantastic way to make a lovely work night meal. Zucchini has only 20 calories per cup, a lot fewer calories than pasta -so enjoy this as often as you like!
Use either a julienne peeler or a vegetable peeler and make wide strips of "noodles".
Lightly sprinkle with salt and let it sit for 10 min.
Then rinse, squeeze off the excess water.
Eat it raw, microwave, or sauté it for a few minutes to heat it up.
Try it! You'll be surprised!
