If you love all things Italian, but are trying to cut back on the pasta, than here is a great recipe for you to try! Check out these great Zucchini Boats with Italian Sausage! They are perfect for a Paleo eater, minus the cheese, and are loaded with awesome nutrients and a lot of flavour. Sometimes it is nice to cut back on the pasta and bread, even though it is so darn good, it isn't the best for us in large quantities. So eating it sparingly is a good idea. But you don't have to veto all of your Italian favourites like sauce and meat! Just use a zucchini instead of pasta!

These awesome little zucchini boats are such a great idea, having the centre all hallowed out to add in the sauce with the meat in it, and then cheese to top it off. This way you have something to eat with the sauce and meat, but it won't be too heavy as the carb filled pasta. Many people stay away from pasta for the most part, just because it is so high in carbs, or carbohydrates. Which are essentially sugars to the body. Eating some of these sugars is good for us, in smaller amounts, but eating them all the time can be hard on they system.

The awesome thing is that there are things like zucchini that are a great substitute, having little to no flavour of their own, they just soak up whatever flavour they are put with, so its nice to pair something like this saucy sausage with the zucchini boats. You can also use a mandolin and slice the zucchini into thin noodle like slices that can act as noodles, so that you feel like you are actually eating noodles with your pasta! Try it out for a change! Head over to 'Lil' Luna' by following the link in the section below for more!
