Octopus Pasta Bowl a la Claudia πŸ™

Happy Wednesday πŸ˜‡ today I’m sharing another simple lunch pan that is thrown together in less than 20 minutes and makes a great healthy lunch 😍

Actually my mom threw it together so shout out to her for getting in her healthy fats and omegas, proteins and veggies 🌈

I also want to point out that she is so great at cutting vegetables and making them look neat, which is important since it helps stimulate her cephalic phase of digestion (the brain helps prepare the system to digest) 🧠

Since it’s summer, we are eating a lot more seafood since it’s lighter, so please bare with me, the winter will feature more meaty recipes πŸ˜‹

Todays bowl features miracle noodles which are one of my favorite pasta swaps, in addition to canned poached octopus, juicy zucchini, bell pepper, fresh herbs and arugula all married together in a tomato sauce and plenty of olive oil πŸ«’

For one bowl you need:

1 package of miracle noodles 🍜 – zoodles could work too ☺️

1 small zucchini πŸ₯’

1 bell pepper πŸ«‘

Arugula πŸ₯¬

Basil 🌿

Onion πŸ§…

Tomato sauce πŸ₯«

1 can of octopus πŸ™ or you could substitute shrimp or scallops (any seafood you like)

Garlic powder, salt and pepper 🌢

Extra Virgin Olive Oil πŸ«’

How to:

Start by sautΓ©ing the onion and the finely chopped zucchini and bell pepper in olive oil. When that has a nice texture, throw in the miracle noodles and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Pour on the tomato sauce and let it simmer, season again and add the basil and arugula.

Since the octopus is already cooked, throw on the octopus when everything else is ready to heat it up! Enjoy 🀩😍
