Food: Dinner Tonight – Grilled Zucchini all around

So excited to report that I found yet another recipe that I can keep as is for the FAM, and also add my own twist to make it Keto-friendly for me. Here’s what I am thinking:

ORIGINAL INGREDIENTS

    • 1 cup dry orzo pasta    ***instead I will use ground chicken sausage – remove skin and saute with a touch of butter – or lots of butter – I usually use Ghee or Grass-fed
    • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped oregano
    • 1 clove garlic, minced or grated
    • kosher salt and pepper
    • 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes
    • 1 cup cubed feta cheese   ***or Parmesan if you aren’t a fan of feta
    • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 3 zucchini or yellow summer squash, halved  *** sticking to only green zucchini for the calorie count and carbs
    • kosher salt and pepper
    • 1/4 cup basil pesto   {MORE}

And because this variation is delicious, I am making it for the entire family rather than the orzo pasta option for them.
