I LOVE pasta. My #1 comfort food is a big bowl of Mama's Spaghetti! Followed closely by a big bowl of chili, over spaghetti noodles.
I truly love a good noodle... and won't give them up.
But there are alternatives.
I love making zucchini noodles.... and putting them over regular noodles. You can't taste the difference at all. Plus, pour your favorite sauce over both and wa-la... COMFORT FOOD! Healthy comfort food.
Another big hit in my house is edamame noodles. Not only do they look and taste like noodles... but they pack an INSANE amount of protein. That helps you feel fuller, longer. WIN-WIN!
Here is a great article on the best non-pasta noodles. Try them... and I promise you'll be pleasantly surprised.
