Ok…ok. I know what you are thinking. GROSS!
There is no way you can make a tasty spaghetti with zucchini noodles. I’ll admit, it doesn’t compare to the real thing and honestly, it might take a little getting used to, but with the right Whole30 Compliant Sauce and full of flavor meat it can be a delicious substitution and SUPER quick meal!
There’s no real recipe. I just sort of threw together ingredients hoping to end up with something edible. Scary, isn’t it?
You can use whatever compliant sauce and meat you prefer, this is just what I used.
In a skillet, brown sausage. You can dice some onion and add it to it for more flavor and extra veggies if you want.
While the sausage browns, heat up a small pan and warm up spaghetti sauce. Transfer sausage to strainer and drain over pepper towels and remove excess oils. In the same skillet as the sausage was cooked in, add zoodles. Cook until desired tenderness. (I like mine pretty tender) Do not add any extra oil to the pan. It will just make the zoodles watery when added to the sauce- gross!
Add meat into sauce pan and stir together.
Once everything is cooked and warm. Add zoodles to a bowl. Top with meat/sauce mixture and top with fresh basil or oregano or both if you’d like! Enjoy!
Have you made a Whole30 Zoodle Spaghetti? What do you think about it? Do you have any tips for making it less watery? We’d love to know what you do to make it a delicious dish! This one is an easy recipe, but honestly, not one of my favorites. If I have the ingredients and don’t feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen, I’ll make it, but it is not one of my favorites. Trying to get there though!
Hope you’re enjoying your Newly Newlywed or Nearly Newlywed (Whole 30) moments as much as we are!
