Pasta is one of the dishes that most people can’t imagine living without, but we often tend to lie to ourselves about its healthy properties. This carb-rich dish isn’t as healthy as we’d like to believe, but these three veggie alternatives certainly are.

Spaghetti Squash

If you’ve never tried making spaghetti from squash, now’s the time! Simply use your fork to separate squash into strings and it’s the closest thing you’ll get to spaghetti noodles. You can eat them on your own or use them to make other dishes, such as casseroles.

Zucchini Noodles

Zucchini noodles are one of the most popular low-carb pasta substitutes, and they’re super easy to make. You can use a spiralizer to cut your zucchini into long strips that resemble noodles, and repeat the process with all sorts of different veggies if you enjoy getting creative in the kitchen.

Cabbage Noodles

Cabbage noodles don’t require any fancy tools, such as a spiralizer, because you can simply slice them with a knife. If cabbage doesn’t do it for you on its own, you can mix it up with other thin-sliced veggies, such as carrots, onions, and radishes.
