Ingredients:

  • 8 oz (225g) zucchini noodles (zoodles)
  • 1 lb (450g) ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 cup sugar-free marinara sauce
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for cooking
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for serving

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Zoodles: If using fresh zucchini, spiralize them into noodle shapes. If using pre-packaged zoodles, skip this step.
  2. Cook the Ground Meat: In a skillet over medium heat, heat a drizzle of olive oil. Add chopped onion and minced garlic, and sauté until fragrant. Add ground beef or turkey and cook until browned and fully cooked. Drain any excess fat.
  3. Add Sauce and Seasoning: Stir in the sugar-free marinara sauce, dried basil, dried oregano, red pepper flakes (if using), salt, and pepper. Let the sauce simmer for a few minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  4. Cook the Zoodles: In a separate skillet, heat a bit of olive oil and add the zoodles. Sauté them for 2-3 minutes, just until slightly softened. Be careful not to overcook them.
  5. Combine and Serve: Plate the zoodles and top with a generous serving of the meat sauce. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and grated Parmesan cheese.

Note: This Keto Spaghetti recipe lets you enjoy the delightful flavors of traditional spaghetti without the carb overload. The zoodles perfectly mimic pasta, making this dish a satisfying option for anyone following a low-carb lifestyle.
