As a part of my husband and I’s weight loss journey, we cannot have pasta. This has been a significant struggle for my husband as he LOVES spaghetti. We tried Zucchini, Carrot, Spaghetti Squash, etc., and none of them scratched the pasta itch. Until now. While they don’t have much of a taste, they really do the trick. I like to rinse them for about 10 minutes, boil in salted water for about 10 minutes, drain them, and then add them to a DRY pan for about 10-12 minutes. They get good and firm with the water getting cooked out. Add to spaghetti sauce, and they pretty much take care of that pasta craving. Take small bites, IMO, as too much in one bite can sometimes cause them to gel together in your mouth. Otherwise - two thumbs up!!
