  • Summary

    I prefer to use ghee in place of olive oil in this dish because ghee has a higher smoking point. This way I know the oil won't burn and oxidize while I'm cooking. You will have leftover spaghetti sauce. You can store it in the freezer for later use.

    Ingredients

    • 2 pounds zucchini, cut into noodles using a noodle slicer?
    • 1/2 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
    • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded (click here for a great how-to video)?
    • Celtic sea salt
    • 1 cup almond flour (if you are allergic to nuts, then use 1/3 arrowroot flour, 1/3 tapioca flour and 1/3 coconut flour)
    • 2 large eggs, beaten?
    • 2 tablespoons ghee (click here for an easy homemade recipe)?
    • 1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano or Mozzarella (omit if Paleo) (I use Pecorino Romano in place of Parmesan because it's more economical and has a nice salty bite.)
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil?
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced?
    • 1 (24-ounce) jar crushed tomatoes (I prefer Eden Organic)?
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
