We have been trying to cut down our carbohydrate intake this past month. So here is a simple but flavorful replacement for pasta. Zucchini noodles can either be purchased from a grocery store or you can make them yourself with a simple spiralizer tool. We got one for $10 from the grocery store, below is a link for purchase on Amazon.


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 chorizo slices, chopped small
  • 3 zucchini, spiralized or julienned
  • 1/2 teaspoon Red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon Paprika
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1-2 shallots, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can whole, peeled San Marzano tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • Grated parmesan, if desired
  1. In a large stainless steel pan heat the olive oil over a medium flame. Add chopped shallots and garlic to the pan until translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Add the chopped chorizo till it starts to brown.
  2. Add tomatoes, water, red pepper flakes, basil, paprika, and milk. Bring to boil and then simmer on low for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the zucchini noodles in and stir in for 5 minutes, leaving a little bit of crunch. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with Parmigiano-Reggiano.
