How to make low carb chicken alfredo:

An excellent way to do this that’s very simple and easy, is by replacing pasta with zoodles. That’s what we did in this Chicken Alfredo Zoodles recipe, and it’s delicious! It’s full of so many flavors and you don’t feel like you’re missing out on pasta!

If you don’t want to use zucchini, you can use other vegetables as well. We like using the zucchini because they’re savory and soak up the flavors of the sauce and seasonings to best reflect the dish it’s cooked in.

What do you eat with zoodles

Zoodles is very versatile. They can replace any pasta recipe to give you a low carb option for your favorite meal when you are looking to cut down on some carbs. Zoodles taste great with chicken, shrimp, and steaks. They pair well with any sauce you mix them in for a vegetarian option. Creamy or tomato-based sauce. A prime example is this chicken alfredo zoodles recipe to replace the classic chicken alfredo.

Is Chicken Alfredo Healthy

Classic chicken alfredo is made with a creamy sauce and pasta that’s high in calories. Switching out some of the ingredients and using healthier alternatives will result in a healthier chicken alfredo. A big plus would be switching that pasta with spiralized zucchini.
