Wild In The Kitchen: Low-Carb Venison Spaghetti
Low-Carb Venison Spaghetti
Wild game like venison is high in protein and has no carbohydrates. Venison spaghetti is a favorite but avoided by some because of the carbohydrates in pasta and the sugars and salt in spaghetti sauces. Here’s a wonderful solution. One serving of Heart of Palm is about 1 gram of carbs and 5 calories. One serving of Parmesan cheese has less than one gram of carbs and 21 calories.
1 lb. ground venison
1 14-oz. can Heart of Palm (linguine cut)
1/2 yellow onion diced
6 cloves garlic minced
6 fresh tomatoes
1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
