Low-Calorie Zucchini Pasta with Lemon & Pecorino

I love this dish. You get all the richness of crisp al dente fettucine, drenched in rich alfredo sauce, for a small fraction of the calories.



The trick to this light, creamy low-calorie dish is in the tools. This little wonder is called a spiral peeler aka zucchini pasta maker. All you do is insert the zucchini and twist and out comes these gorgeous green noodles. Then, boil some water and cook the "noodles" to desired level of softness. I prefer crunchier noodles but you can play around to find what you like. Put the cooked "pasta" in a bowl, add some lemon juice and grated pecorino cheese, stir until a creamy sauce develops and then stuff your face!
