This is a wonderful way to get your pasta fix without eating all the waist expanding pasta. I know zucchini doesn’t sound like a great alternative, but believe me, don’t knock until you have tried it! Just be sure to keep them al dente, as they cook very fast and will become very mushy.

I use my spirilizer to make my beautiful zucchini noodles and then I get creative with whatever veggies and proteins I have in the frig.

4-6 Zucchini (at least 4 Cups of Spirilized Zucchini)
1 Red Onion, sliced
2 Cups Sliced Mushrooms
1 ½ Cups Ground Turkey, Grass Fed Beef or any other protein you like!
1 T. Ghee
2 T. Coconut Oil
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
Pinch or drop of Stevia, optional
½ tsp. Fennel
¼ tsp. Oregano or ¼ Cup fresh Basil, optional
1 T. pressed garlic, press and let sit for 10 mins before mixing in.
Soft Goat cheese or Cashew Cream to sprinkle on top, optional


  1. Saute your ground meat.
  2. Add salt, pepper, fennel and 1 tsp. vinegar.
  3. After it’s cooked remove from pan and place into large bowl.
  4. Then, saute sliced onion in the same cooking pan with ½ T. Coconut oil, until slightly brown and soft.
  5. Remove and add to cooked meat.
  6. Then, saute mushrooms in same pan with ½ T. Ghee. Add salt, pepper, 1 tsp vinegar, basil or oregano.
  7. Cook until browned. Add to meat mixture.
    Place the zucchini in the clean pan, 1 T water and steam for 30 secs (it cooks very quickly). Add your meat mixture and pressed garlic. Mix and serve.
  8. Or, for a creamy Stroganoff texture and taste, put a dollop of cashew cream or sprinkle with goat cheese on top .
