Faux Noodles That Make a Guilt-Free Bowl of Pasta

Carrot spaghetti? Don’t rule it out just yet!

Easy Carrot Spaghetti

These colorful “noodles” from Oatmeal With a Fork are made from vitamin A-rich carrot ribbons, which are super easy to make with a vegetable peeler. Mushrooms give the marinara sauce a hearty flavor and meaty texture. Go homemade with the sauce to cut back on extra sodium. If you’re pressed for time and need to pick up the store-bought variety, opt for a low-sodium sauce with minimal ingredients and no added salt. Perfect for busy weeknights, you’ll have a nutrient- and flavor-packed meal on the table in less than 30 minutes.

Lemon-Oregano Salmon and Leek Parsnip Pasta

Root vegetables like parsnips and turnips are well-suited for your spiralizer or vegetable peeler. This delicious “pasta” dish from Inspiralized uses parsnips, which have a slightly sweet taste, but also impart a nutty and earthy flavor. Pair them with heart-healthy salmon, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and mild leeks for a delicious dinner any day of the week.

Spinach and Zucchini Lasagna

Cheesy lasagna doesn’t have to be a calorie-bomb. Give the comfort food favorite a veggie twist like in this low-carb, gluten-free recipe from Primavera Kitchen. Using low-cal veggies like zucchini and spinach in place of lasagna noodles means you’ll slash hundreds of calories while getting a boost of vitamins and minerals.
