Carrot Spaghetti
  • Prep 10 min
  • Total 15 min
  • Ingredients 9
  • Servings 1

I love cooking pasta with carrot instead of just regular pasta. Even though they look like they’re light, they’re enough for lunch or for a light but satisfying dinner. When preparing spaghetti with carrots, I use a mandoline slicer, and I love it because I can choose how thick I want my pasta. But, if you don’t have one, you can use a potato peeler and get thin slices of carrot that will look like fettuccini. Cook the sauce with vegetables, meat, or shrimp, then, add the carrot you cooked. It will be really easy to roll the pasta onto your fork, and you’ll enjoy its incredible flavor. MORE + LESS -
