Zucchini Spaghetti

I'm telling you that this dish doesn't taste like you're on a diet. Having tomatoes and mushrooms as free vegetables makes this meal possible. This recipe results in four servings.

Ingredients

  • 4 zucchini - 16 oz total
  • 1 pound ground chicken or lean beef
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms. Vegans can chop up the mushroom in small pieces to help thicken the sauce
  • 2 Cans of Tomato Puree (sugar free)
  • 1 Can diced tomatoes
  • 1 Can tomato paste
  • 2 packets of Stevia
  • Oregano
  • Minced Garlic
  • Thyme
  • Rosemary
  • 1 Bay leave
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cilantro

Spiralize the zucchini. You can warm the zucchini by boiling them in hot water for just a short period of time.

Each of the spices probably should be less than 1/2 a teaspoon, but I will leave this up to your personal tast.

Put all other ingredients into a crock pot and cook for 2 hours. If you prefer, you can also throw your zucchini into the crock pot instead of boiling it.

This freezes well and can be reheated for future meals.
