Zoodles with bolognese sauce

A real “comfort food” and a very similar taste to plain pasta. Believe me when I say so because I’m someone who is really obsessed with pasta 😀

The best part of it all is that “zoodles” pasta has at least 90% less carbohydrates than plain pasta. Isn’t that awesome?

We made Zoodles using a spiral cutter or “spiralizer”. The choices of spiralizers are huge. We bought one of the cheapest version and it’s more than satisfactory.

This dish is very simple to make and also fast so we recommend it during the week … Enjoy and bon apetit!
