New year, new me! Or so they say…:)
Resolutions are a wonderful thing, and our White Table team has come to one resounding goal we all feel we want to aspire towards this year. A focus on healthy eating, and healthy habits. Try and hold us to that, will ya? 😉 As we busy ourselves for another year of prepping, planning, and gearing up for the celebrations to come, we also want to be able to share some of these exciting new recipes with you as well! And to start off our healthy eating goal well, we thought we’d share our first recipe of the year with something lean & green. Our Zucchini Pasta is a healthy alternative to your regular pasta dish. It’s fresh and deliciously seasoned and dressed that you won’t realize it’s not actually carbs, we promise!
Try this recipe for yourself and make this your family’s new “Spaghetti Saturday”!
(Psssst… dinner guests will love this too!)
