Quick and Easy Low Carb - Spiralized Zucchini with White Clam Sauce

This is hardly a 'recipe' but yet, it is a great brainstorm/hack for a quick and easy dinner.  I had a really 'small' trip to the grocery store about a month ago where I only needed a few items so I had time and the budget to read labels and look for new products to try.  I normally would make my clam sauce from scratch but I decided to read the labels of canned and found it to be a good item to have on hand in the pantry for a dinner 'emergency'.  Normally I would have doctored this canned sauce up with a good 'homemade' alfredo sauce using some heavy cream, butter, cream cheese and parmesan.  But it so happened that I had 1/2 jar of alfredo sauce in the refrigerator I had  to use up as well so... there ya go!

White Clam Sauce over Spiralized Zucchini 'Pasta'

1 can Progresso Clam Sauce (or similar - look for 4 carb, 0 or less than 1 g sugar)
1/2 jar Bertolli Alfredo Sauce (or similar - this one has 2 carb, 0 sugar)
3 medium zucchini

Mix the clam sauce with the half jar (or use the whole jar for a creamier sauce or more sauce if you need to feed another person or two).  Spiralize your zucchini.  Warm the sauces either in the microwave or a pan on the stove.  Boil a pan of water, add the zucchini and cook just 2 minutes or so until the zucchini loses the 'crunch' but isn't soft and mushy.  Drain well, press a little bit as it holds a lot of water.  I sometimes use paper towels to absorb a bit.  Place in a serving bowl, top with the sauce.

* I serve it with the low carb, keto almond flour biscuits - my 'go to' for any biscuit need right now, recipe here:  BISCUITS

I've talked about my vegetable spiralizer (spiral maker) a LOT on the website already - here is one of the links if you need to find one for your own home.  I really love mine.
