Low Carb Recipe: Pasta Sauce, vegetables and "noodles"

I saw someone (nicolesFitnesz) on Tiktok make this recipe and I wanted to try it. I changed the recipe to fit my own tastes.

You will need: 

1/2 Yellow Onion- sliced thin
1/2 Bell Pepper- sliced thin
6 white mushrooms- sliced thin
4 ounces Baby Spinach
2 Egglife Wraps- cut into 1 inch wide strips
3/4 cup Rao's Marinara Sauce
Small handful shredded mozzarella or parmesan cheese
2TBSP oil

What to do: Add oil to your pan and then add your bell pepper, onion and mushrooms. Sauté over medium low heat until soft and browned. I like mine done a little more so cook them to the doneness you like. Add baby spinach to the pan and stir for 2 minutes until spinach has wilted. Add marinara sauce and Egglife wrap strips. Stir until completely mixed and heated through. Transfer to your plate and top with mozzarella or parmesan. I don't like parmesan so I used mozzarella. You can also add meat to this recipe if you like but I didn't want to this time.

This was actually really good and I was surprised.

I'm not a big pasta eater, I never liked pasta all that much but it's nice to know that if I am in the mood for a pasta dish I can make this and it's low carb and tastes good. 

I'm not gonna lie, the Egglife wraps do not taste like pasta noodles, they do taste like egg whites but in the pasta sauce they were good and stood up to cooking and the sauce without getting soggy and doughy. For 6 wraps the price was $4.99.  I used the wraps I had left over and filled them with scrambled eggs, pico de gallo and bacon and I liked them for that.

The Rao's marinara sauce is one of the best marinara sauces I've ever had. It was even better than mine. It was a little expensive though, $7.49 a bottle. But for a low carb marinara sauce it's very good and this bottle will last me a while.

Does this sound like something you would eat?
