Carrot & Zucchini “Spg” with Sweet Sausage


Happy New Year, everyone!!  This is the month where everyone cuts out sugar, carbs and all the good things in life that we love the most; in an effort to get “back on track”.  However, the carb cravings can still linger so here’s a GREAT, EASY recipe to try! 

Growing up, homemade sauce, spg & meatballs was a weekly staple in our family.  So, I am not shy to say I crave and love all things Italian.  This was a fantastic substitute for your traditional spg and meatballs. I was shocked at how delicious this blend was together.

HERE is an informative video on how to spiralize your vegetables.

*FYI, If you do not have a spiralizer, you can purchase carrot and zucchini “spg” in Whole Foods.

Ingredients: (4 Servings)

  • 4 Large Carrots, spiralized
  • 4 Large Zucchini, spiralized
  • 1 Package Sweet Italian Sausage (or chicken)
  • 1 24oz Rao’s Sauce (or your own homemade sauce!)
  • Olive Oil
  • *Optional: Sheep’s Milk Romano or Fresh Shaved Parm


  1. Heat a sauce pan with olive oil and place sausage.  Cook on each side 2-3 minutes until all sides are browned.
  2. In a large sauce pan, heat tomato sauce and add sausage when browned on each side.
  3. In a large skillet, coat with olive oil and sautee carrots and zucchini for 5-6 minutes. *Note: You do not want to cook these too much. They become soggy (uck!). So sautee them just enough so they are a little soft but still “al dente”.
  4. In a bowl, place carrot & zucchini spg, top with sausage and sauce.
  5. Optional: Sprinkle sheeps milk romano or fresh shaved parm.
