Alright, real talk. I was a server at Olive Garden through grad school (judge me, whatever). Anyways, I loved the steak gorgonzola pasta, basically the richest, creamiest pasta dish on earth. So as a dietitian, of course I’m going to try and make it healthyish without it tasting lame.

THIS RECIPE IS AMAZING. I replaced pasta with zoodles because lord knows this meal needed some vegetables and adding some heart healthy fat to the sauce helped this dish out a lot. You will be weirded out by adding mashed avocado to a hot pan but trust me. DO IT.

Nutrition Info:

Zoodles: A medium zucchini provides about 30 calories, 6 grams of total carbohydrates and 2 grams of fiber, which works out to only 4 grams of net carbs. By comparison, a 2-cup serving of wheat pasta contains approximately 90 grams of carbohydrates.

Avocado: 1/3 of a medium avocado has about 80 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, making it a great nutrient-dense food choice!

Spinach: is an extremely nutrient-rich vegetable. It contains high amounts of carotenoids, vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid, iron and calcium.

Tomato: Tomatoes are a good source of several vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C, potassium, vitamin K and folate.
