Here's an easy trick to cut down on carbs and boost nutrients in your favorite pasta dishes. Substitute yellow squash or zucchini noodles for half of the cooked pasta you'd ordinarily use. For a recipe that calls for 1 lb. pasta, use only 8 oz. and add two cups of thin, peeled yellow squash or zucchini strips to the cooked, drained noodles. The heat of the pasta will soften the squash to the perfect consistency.
