Zucchini Alfredo Bake

So tomorrow is my birthday! I am going out of town with my husband for the honor band concert, so I'll be straying at my mom's house since she lives up there. I have made some birthday dinner requests, and none of them are low carb... But that's what birthdays are for! 

Since we will be out of town for a few days, I know that my perishables will probably not last that long. I tried to use up as many as I could in dinner tonight, and I really surprised myself- not only with how many veggies I could fit into a casserole dish, which was impressive in its own right, but also how delicious it could be.  

I know I've said it before, but I will continue to say it: A low carb diet is really the diet for me. I mean, on what other diet can I savor the creamy, garlicy, cheesey flavors of alfredo sauce? 

2 zucchini (zucchinis?), sliced or cubed
Several mushrooms, sliced
About a quarter of a big bag of spinach (I told you this recipe consisted of leftovers haha)
4 oz cream cheese (optional- I added it because it was already open and would have gone bad by Sunday)
1/2 jar low fat alfredo sauce
Garlic powder
Onion powder
Salt and pepper
Olive oil

Preheat oven to 400.  In a skillet, sautée the mushrooms and spinach in olive oil with seasonings. Add cream cheese and alfredo sauce. Stir until melted and hot.  In a casserole dish, layer zucchini and alfredo mixture, ending with the alfredo. Bake for 20 minutes. To add some color, I topped it with a bit of shredded cheese and broiled it until it turned golden. 

I'm glad I was able to save some of my fresh veggies instead of them going to waste. It also makes me feel good to eat such a veggie-loaded dinner tonight, because I fully intend to enjoy my not-low-carb birthday dinner!!


  1. Amazing! Added onions and passed on the cream cheese, great way to get some veggies in!

    P.S.—Have you ever tried Ketone supplements? They can be helpful for near-term energy... but long-term, they DON’T fix the 3 core deficiencies you discover on this page.
