One of the things that has been hard to let go of on my low carb diet is pasta. But I have found some alternatives to the traditional recipes that are lighter and healthier. Most do not include pasta but this one does include noodles, egg noodles.
I’ve considered making lasagna with zucchini “noodles” but hubby just doesn’t love zucchini, so instead I created this recipe for him. The recipe below asks for diced tomatoes, but I don’t include those for him as he doesn’t like tomato chunks. So they are optional if you are a tomato person.
This is one of the recipes that I am making a large batch at the beginning of the week and reheat it for the night hubby is at school. This recipe is amazing reheated! The flavors just meld and grow as the soup sits in the fridge, so make a little extra so you have leftovers!
I used this amazing meat I found at the store Jenny O Italian Seasoned Ground Turkey. Wow that meat is just filled with flavor and is so good. But if you cannot find this at your local store grab a package of turkey sausage.
Healthy Mom = Healthy Family - That is my life motto and I hope to encourage it to be yours too. January 2011 I made the decision to lose weight and lost 80+ pounds. I saw my boys start getting active with me and I realized I wasn't only changing my life but also my boys.
