Keto/Low Carb Pasta Con Broccoli

No comments

Since I’ve started to eat less carbs the one thing I miss more than LIFE is pasta. I’m always on the hunt for a good substitute. I don’t mind veggie pastas, but sometimes they just don’t cut it for me…I’m like….YO…I know you’re zucchini. I mean, it’s technically still veggie pasta, but this recipe tricks my mind enough to make me forget!

I’m from St. Louis, MO and everyone there knows about a local restaurant called The Pasta House. My favorite dish there is Pasta Con Broccoli. I literally crave the stuff all the time. It’s noodles, alfredo sauce, and broccoli….sounds simple but it’s A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Well I won’t lie to you, this doesn’t taste exact, but IF you are keto/low carb-ing it and needing some pasta, this recipe satisfies my craving for it! Anytime I can eat “healthy pasta” I’m down.
