Skinny Zucchini Pasta & Baby Spinach

Skinny Zucchini Pasta & Baby Spinach

Today we have a WINNING recipe for you so that you can WIN in your nutrition and WIN in life!

Today’s WINNING recipe to meet Coach JC’s 10 WINNING Habits is Skinny Zucchini Pasta and Baby Spinach. Where are my veggies?


4 medium zucchini, peeled and ends removed
1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon capers
1/4 cup Italian parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 cup loosely packed baby spinach
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese


Place each zucchini on a vegetable spiralizer to make the pasta. Use the smaller holes for spaghetti.

Optional: Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon salt on zucchini pasta, tossing to coat. Spread pasta on double layer of paper towels on a baking sheet, which will extract some of the water. Allow to set for 10 minutes.

Add olive oil to a large skillet over medium-low heat.

Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute.

Raise heat to medium, add tomatoes with liquid, capers, parsley, oregano, black pepper, rep pepper, remaining salt, and zucchini pasta, tossing to combine.

Cook until pasta is tender, about 7 – 8 minutes.

Add spinach and cook just until wilted, about 1 minute.

Add to serving platter and sprinkle with parmesan.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
