For my cousin, I don't think he was ready for zucchini pasta, so I gave him veggie pasta instead. Garden Veggie Rotini. I need his calorie count to stay within a certain range, so he had a good helping of both pasta and sauce.
With my pasta I found a vegan Parmesan to add, and for his pasta I am giving him true Parmesan. He is eating more of a vegetarian diet for now. I don't know if he is prepared to go cold turkey, so I don't want him to give up. He also has the Garlic knots sold at Wal-Mart, they are delicious and I am jealous that I couldn't add it to my meal plan.
