Mussels, Zucchini Pasta

Being Italian, pasta is in my blood!!!!! The problem is all those carbs and the older I get, the more I look for healthier options. The good news is that I’ve found an easy and simple replacement for pasta which is zucchini!!! I found that replacing pasta with twirled zucchini is a fantastic substitution and such a healthy alternative. Here’s a simple recipe that I made tonight for dinner and all you need on hand is:

1 Onion

3 Cloves of Garlic

6-7 Plum Tomatoes

Olive oil

1 Large Zucchini

1 Package of Frozen Mussels

1 Can of Drained Cannelli Beans

Italian Seasoning and Powdered Garlic

Instructions:

1. In a large pan, pour some olive oil and then add a diced onion and fresh garlic. Slowly saute them for a couple minutes on medium heat. Add chopped tomatoes and the cannelli beans and give it a stir.

2. Continue to cook on a medium heat. Add your mussls and seasonings to taste. Lastly, add the twirled Zucchini and stir.

3. Let the mixture cook on a low setting. From start to finish this recipe took 30 minutes.

My husband and I really loved this recipe and hope that you will enjoy it too!!!! Here’s to healthy eating!!!!
