Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Sauce

Low-carb week continues! I’ve been sharing a few low-carb recipes over the past week, and this one is another one of my favorites. I made this yesterday and ate the entire bowl in minutes. Then I made another batch for my husband to avoid judgment.

Alright, So here’s how it works with this whole “zoodles” thing. If you’re craving pasta, then by all means please get up and make yourself a big bowl of carbs and enjoy it! But, if you’re in the mood for something a bit lighter, and don’t mind scarfing a little texture for less calories, then this zucchini pasta is perfect for you. You’ll eat the entire bowl and never look back. Everything in this pasta is so good for you, dare I call it super food.
