Six weeks ago I got test results that changed my life. I did not have my diabetes under control and carbohydrates and sugar were to blame. One of the items that I miss the most is pasta and in particular Fettuccini Alfredo with Bertolli sauce. I create a low carb option that is just as good, if not better!
I have to admit, I was a skeptic in thinking that I would be able to eat foods with so many vegetables and zucchini is not a huge favorite of mine, however, after tonight I will definitely be adding this to my meal plan! The Bertolli Alfredo sauce really made this meal scrumptious. Its rich, creamy flavor with a touch of Tuscany was just what I was craving and at only 2 carbohydrates for 1/4 cup, it was exactly in my low carb range.
- 2 medium zucchini's
- 1/4 cup Bertolli Alfredo Sauce
- 1 jar of button mushrooms (halved)
- 4 oz of ready to eat chicken
- 1 TBS olive oil
- 1 tsp butter
- Using a vegetable spiral slicer, spiralize the zucchini's. Make sure to cut the ends off and I found it easier to cut mine in half.
- In a medium sauce pan place your spiral zucchini and olive oil and cook on medium for 3-5 minutes.
- Add 1/8 cup of water to the zucchini and let it cook down.
- Drain the zucchini pasta and then place back in the pan.
- Use the microwave to head up your chicken pieces and half the button mushrooms.
- Place the chicken and the mushrooms in the sauce pan and add the butter to the mushrooms. Allow to melt.
- Add Bertolli Alfredo Sauce and mix together. Serve & Enjoy!
1 serving of this meal is 5-6 carbs depending on how many mushrooms you decide to eat. It really hits the spot when you are really wanting some pasta but are trying to stay on plan. I am very happy to still be able to enjoy quality sauces that are low carb and put together a dinner that is fast, healthy and that everyone loves. We all really enjoyed this and I am excited for tomorrows leftovers!
