If you didn't think you could love noodles any more, they just got better.  With zucchini noodles (aka - "zoodles"), this spin on classic spaghetti becomes diabetic friendly, gluten free and veggie-fied all at the same time! Pair them with Italian chicken sausage, grilled chicken breast or ground turkey for a convenient, light skillet meal that will wow your taste buds!

Roasted Tomato, Pesto and Sausage Zoodles

Ingredients:

  • 2 pints grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 (12 oz.) package Italian chicken sausage, sliced
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 (3.5 oz.) jar pesto
  • 2 (10 oz.) packages zucchini spaghetti
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, toss grape tomato halves with 2 Tbsp. olive oil. Spread into a single layer on the baking sheets lined with aluminum foil. Roast for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
  2. Heat remaining 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add chicken sausage and cook until warm. Add zucchini spaghetti and sauté for up to 2 minutes.
