Recipe Notes:

We received some Almond Love With Ziti Pasta complimentary, as a part of a recipe challenge we are doing on Instagram. We were tasked with using the pasta in a homemade recipe. This pasta is very high in protein, and low in carbs, at only 3 net carbs per serving. It’s made with almond flour and clean ingredients, the first of it’s kind! If you don’t have Almond Love With, you can simply sub for your favorite low carb noodle substitute, like zoodles, spaghetti squash, or shirataki noodles.

Let’s Make It!​


If using Almond Love With Pasta (or any other noodle substitute) prepare these first and set aside.

Season your chicken breasts liberally with salt, pepper and garlic powder. In a skillet, melt half of your butter (2 tbsp). Sear the chicken until it is browned on both sides and cooked all the way thru. Drizzle with juice of 1/2 a lemon while it’s still in the pan.

When it’s cooked, (after about 10 minutes) remove it from the skillet and set aside.

Add 1 tbsp of butter to the pan, and add in diced onions and sliced mushrooms with a pinch of salt of pepper. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes and then add in your spinach. Cook until spinach is wilted and soft, about 3 minutes, then remove all of the vegetables from the pan.

Add in the remaining 1 tbsp of butter, then add in your bacon bits to crisp up over medium-high heat. Once they are crispy, add in the garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Then, pour in the dry white wine. Cook on medium-high for about 3 minutes to cook off the alcohol.

Next, add in your half and half, heavy whipping cream, remaining lemon juice and parmesan cheese. Stir constantly until parmesan cheese is melted and fully incorporated.

Add the mushrooms, spinach and onion back to the pan. Cut the chicken breasts into bite sized pieces and add those to the pan as well. Taste and adjust the seasonings to your preferences. Stir in your noodle replacement of choice.

Garnish with parmesan cheese, more bacon bits, and lemon juice. Enjoy!
