This version is a basic spaghetti and meat sauce recipe. But to lower the carbs use Zoodles and to lighten it up more use ground chicken breast.

Step 1: Soften the Onions and Garlic

Heat up 1 Generous Tablespoon of Olive oil.

2 Cloves of Garlic that I have been chopped up. 1/4 Cup finely diced Onion. 2 Large Baby Bella Mushrooms that have been cut up. After the onion is soft and the garlic is smelling really good (so good that I want to eat just this) add 1 pound of Ground Chicken Breast. Lightly season with Salt and Black Pepper, enough for the sauce. Cook the chicken for about 2 minutes while using your spatula to break it up.

Step 2: Add Tomatoes

Add 1 28 oz can of Crushed Tomatoes.

1/4 teaspoon (or more if you like) of Red Pepper Flakes

1 teaspoon dried Thyme.

1 teaspoon dried Oregano.

Stir and bring to a very low simmer (to prevent making a mess in the kitchen)

Step 3: Cut Zoodles

Use your Zoodle cutter to make zoodles from 2 to 4 Zucchini (depending upon size) I used 2 medium but could have used 3 if I had a bigger pan.

Lightly season with Salt and Black Pepper, enough for the Zoodles.

Step 4: Finish Cooking

Stir the Zoodles into the Sauce and on a low simmer cook to your desired noodle texture. I simmered mine for about 5 minutes.

Just before serving chop up 2 or three leaves of fresh basil, stir into the dish and serve. Fresh basil will turn black and lose flavor very quickly so just heat it and serve.

I do hope that you enjoy the recipe.

Step 5: Watch Video

<p>the sound effects are great (when you're mixing your zoodles in)! ;) </p>
<p>Thank you! I try to balance cooking sounds with narration and back ground music. I am getting better at it. </p>
<p>I also like that rocking knife for cutting the basil. Does it have a specific name?</p>
It is one of my favorite tools. I use a lot of cilantro but hate cutting it fine. <br><br>Look for Wusthof Mincing Set, 2 Piece (Mezzaluna and Cutting Board)
<p>I am going to get a Zoodle Cutter asap. I'm so glad that you shared this recipe. Thank YOU!</p>
<p>They great to have around, best of all they are cheap. </p>
Nice ad for Zoodle cutters.
<p>The sauce sounds delicious and I love zoodles!</p>
<p>Thank you! I do love this sauce and zoodles help to give more flavor. </p>
<p>This looks yummy!</p>
