Adding more vegetables to a pasta dish helps to cut the total carbohydrate of the dish. If 60 grams of carbohydrate is too much in one meal, you can add additional lean, ground meat to the recipe, and divide this into 5, rather than 4 portions. In that case, each portion will have 48 grams of carbohydrate and 48 grams of protein.
Zucchini noodles can be purchased in the frozen section of many grocery stores, or made at home if you have a kitchen tool to make them (spiralizer). You can also simply chop the zucchini.
