“This recipe uses the recently introduced low-carb pasta for a flavor-packed, yet healthy side dish that satisfies your pasta craving without breaking your low-carb diet! Note: The 'Zaar nutrition chart doesn't recognize "low-carb" pasta, so be sure to add the number of carb grams shown on your pasta box. For example, my brand contains 5 G. net carbs, so my corrected total is 7.5 G. net carbs in each serving.”

Directions

  1. Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain. HINT - save 1/4 cup pasta water to add to pasta later if it needs more liquid.
  2. Stir all other ingredients into hot pasta, saving a little of the Parmesan to sprinkle on top. If the dish seems too dry, you can add a little of the reserved pasta water (the starch in that water helps to bind the sauce).
  3. A nice variation is to toss in about 20 grape tomatoes (split in half first) as you toss all the ingredients. They add wonderful color and flavor.
