Zoodles with Meat Sauce will satisfy that craving for a savory pasta dish while keeping up with that lower carb life. I’ve been incorporating low carb dishes into my families meal rotation for years and lately more so than ever. My kids actually request this “green noodle” pasta dish that, well, isn’t pasta at all.

You can serve the meat sauce immediately over the zoodles or I prefer to heat the zoodles slightly. In a separate frying pan heat the zoodles over medium heat for a few minutes until softened. Serve the meat sauce over the zoodles and top with chopped fresh basil.
