Introduction

No, I’m not kidding…

Pasta. I missed pasta soooo much when I started following a low carb lifestyle. Not just the actual pasta, but the EASE of it, that busy woman’s backup of of a quick spaghetti bolognese on a weeknight.

Yes, I know all about zoodles. I love zoodles. But, let’s not kid ourselves, they’re not pasta.

Then I discovered this Slendier low carb pasta, readily available at major supermarkets.

The flavour and texture is so similar to wheat pasta, and winner winner, it only takes a few minutes to cook! In fact, you can have this cooked and on the table in under 45 minutes, including half an hour to cook the meatballs in the oven.

I combined mine with Celebrate Health Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce, adding sugarfree passata and delicious meatballs.

I dare you to make this and not love it.

Make it. Share it. Tag me.

Enjoy!​
