Zucchini noodles aka zoodles are a great keto-friendly alternative to pasta and an easy way to get more vegetables into your diet. Cook zucchini noodles for too long though and they go mushy.

What I love about this low carb recipe is that the vegetable noodles are cooked as part of a one pot, tray bake and tossed in the slow roasted garlic and tomato juices so they’re so super tasty.

Have you made prosciutto crisps before? They’re the perfect salty complement to this healthy dinner and topped with goats cheese. Baked so it’s all warm and gooey. If you want to add more healthy fats, simply drizzle with two more tablespoons of olive oil to serve.

Be ready guys, your taste buds are going to tango with this dish! I’m in love with it and I make a variation of it most weeks. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Food is one of life’s most powerful medicines. I’m a true testament that once you find the right approach for you, you can overcome poor health through the healing power of food.

I believe the secret to radiant health starts and ends with a healthy gut so my recipes are all grain, gluten and refined sugar free. Most are also dairy-free.
