I use to be a big lover of pasta in my days. I could eat it every day for lunch and dinner and never get bored. It probably was biggest sacrifice for me when I change my diet to low carb. But I was very determined to stick to my plan.
When I worked in Italian restaurant we had this lovely pasta dish with garlic prawns and this recipe low carb version.
I discovered zoodles not that long time ago and I think they are really good healthy option. I prefer to get rid of as much moisture out of zucchini as I can then final dish don’t have all this juice in the end. It’s nice served with Parmesan cheese on the top.
Here it is my zoodles with prawns recipe.
