1. Zucchini Noodles

This recipe uses zucchini instead of pasta. You can boil the zucchini noodles, sauté them, or eat raw. You can use a julienne peeler to make the noodles or a vegetable spiralizer, which is widely available on line or at retailer like Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

Top with tomato sauce for the low calorie option, or with your favorite pasta sauce. You can also use zucchini shavings as the “pasta” in lasagna.
