Zucchini Pasta with Chicken and Peppers

ZucchiniPasta2

My family loves pasta but we try to keep simple carbohydrates to a minimum. Since making the decision to eliminate gluten from my diet as few years ago, I’ve had a lot of fun discovering new ways to make old favorites.  Zucchini thinly sliced and sautéed lightly in garlic makes a truly scrumptious fettuccine.

Enjoy this healthy “pasta” dish that  is loaded with healthy nutrients and bursting with flavor.
