Crab Zoodle Bake uses zucchini spirals for a healthy pasta alternative.

Are you scintillated by seafood and proud to be a pasta aficionado? You you love creamy seafood dishes but don’t like all the extra calories? This Crab Zoodle Bake recipe is just the recipe for you.

Crab Zoodle Bake – Healthy Pasta Alternative

Zucchini is a healthier but still delicious alternative to regular pasta, so this meal is bound to put smiles on everyone who dines with you.

There are a number of vegetable spiralizer options available on the market today. This spiralizer is high quality yet less than $30.00. If you plan to use your spiraled zucchini or other veggies in place of noodles, it’s worth spending a few more dollars for a high-quality spiralizer. I first purchased a hand-held spiralizer and found it to be frustrating. One with a stand and handle is much more effective.

Keto & Paleo

Because there are no noodles, this recipe is a great Paleo and Keto alternative. Because imitation crab has additives, be sure to use real crab.
