These roasted garlic red pepper zoodles are low in fat and high in protein thanks to added nutritional yeast. Roasting the garlic and peppers adds a ton of flavour and creamy texture without adding oil or extra salt. This recipe is a lighter, low calorie way to satisfy a pasta craving! If you’re not a fan of zoodles, feel free to use the sauce over your favourite pasta, steamed veggies or baked spaghetti squash.
