In Ketogenic, Natural Food, Nutrition by Marja

This is one of my all time favourite dishes and a true staple in my nutrition! I have never been a pasta lover, but if you are, it gives you that familiarity of an Italian meal without creating a carb coma or feeling as if you need a nap after eating!

What I love about this dish is its super easy to make, it’s loaded with protein and left overs are great for lunch the next day!

Here are the directions and ingredients below. I hope you enjoy it #nomnom!
