Mix your veggies and protein into your pasta
First, look at the amount of pasta you’re going to make and match that in veggies and protein. So if you’re making four cooked cups of pasta, make two cooked cups of vegetables and two cooked cups of your protein. Mix everything together in one giant bowl. You’ll end up eating the same portion size of pasta, but now only one-third of it will be carbs—but you won’t notice so long as there is some pasta in every bite.
