Spicy patty pan pasta is a good low carb veggie pasta because the “noodles” are made out slivers from a patty pan squash. I make the patty pan noodles by taking a vegetable peeler, and slicing it into small slivers of the patty pan squash, which mimic the noodles of pasta. After the patty pan squash “noodles” have been created, I saute these in a pan with a little bit of oil, organic tomato sauce, garlic, cilantro (or whatever herbs I have on hand), and some ground up habanero peppers.
This is a spicy dish, and I have always preferred a bit of spice because it means I can cut down on the amount of salt I add to a dish. Actually, I do not put any salt in this dish whatsoever, but if you are making a patty pan squash a bit more on the mild side, you could opt for a garlic salt mix that has less salt, and which is mixed with ground up garlic and herbs to add more flavor to a dish.
