Now I just loved pasta growing up and pasta is one of those ingredients that you have to get used to removing from your diet or moderating while on keto. Spaghetti bolognese is of course laden with tasty but high carb pasta. Shame but your search for a delicious bolognese dish should not end in heartbreak. For here I present a great alternative dish in the form of my keto chicken bolognese sauce with angel hair zoodles.
That last ingredient may have you scratching your head. You may not have heard of zoodles particularly versus other flour based everyday noodles.
You see compared to regular pasta, zucchini pasta offers way less calories. One big cup of zoodles has only about 30–40 calories; compare that to regular spaghetti or linguini, which has about 210 calories per cup! I use zoodles in my other popular dishes also such as this Korean beef recipe. They are put to good use here also in my delicious keto chicken bolognese sauce with angel hair zoodles. Try the recipe and let me know what you think.
