Simple Swap That Promises 'Low-Calorie Spaghetti' Just Might Be a Game-Changer

If you’re looking for a way to cut a few calories without giving up everything you love, this recipe for zucchini spaghetti will be a welcome addition to your weekly menu. TikTok content creator @skinnytaste shows us how to use zucchini noodles to lower the calories in our spaghetti. You won’t even notice you’re eating less pasta!

 This brilliant idea takes away some extra calories but not the pasta!

We love this calorie-reducing idea because we don’t have to give up the pasta we adore. Simply take one zucchini and turn it into spirals. Cook the spirals in a frying pan with olive oil until softened, and then add in 2oz of cooked pasta, plus sauce to warm and blend together. So easy! This wonderful trick will bring in beautiful colors and flavors, too. Even if you’re not limiting your carbs, this smart idea is the perfect hiding place for more nutrients and fiber too. Yellow zucchini spirals should fool even the fussiest of eaters.

The audience was ready to add in their vegetables, and viewer @KristinPozniak commented, “Agree. It gives a different "bite" to pasta. In a good way!” We think we will love each bite of this spaghetti, too! Viewer @CristyNoH commented, “Yes! So delicious. I add carrots, red, and yellow bell peppers, too.” Sounds great to us, and it will look even prettier!

This smart hack will become a family favorite, and no one will even realize they are eating more veggies and fewer carbs! This is the perfect way to remove some calories while keeping all the satisfying flavor!
