Without a doubt, every time I flip through health or fitness magazines, there is a feature on a “low calorie” pasta dish. Very alluring, right? Don’t let the smoke and mirrors trick you, my friends: these “low calorie” pastas are photographed in tiny little bowls to make the portion look larger. To achieve this calorie count advertised in the magazine, you most likely will be eating a large fistful of penne or a baby fistful of spaghetti. Bo-ring.
We’re smarter than that here at Inspiralized. Ditch the magazine and come here for real recipes that truly are low calorie, low carb, hopefully delicious and most of all: full of veggies! With zucchini pasta, not only are you literally eating a bowl of veggies, you’re enjoying the same great flavors that regular pasta offers (without the high carbs and cals!)
To really prove my point, I bought a food scale and measured out portions and did mathematical calculations (eek!) to offer honest information. If you haven’t already bought a spiralizer, you will now. These calculations don’t include the marinara sauce!
