Healthy Steak Gorgonzola Zoodles

Don’t knock this version of healthy steak gorgonzola zoodles, before you try it! Alright, real talk. I was a server at Olive Garden through grad school (judge me, whatever). Anyways, I loved the steak gorgonzola pasta, which is basically the richest, creamiest pasta dish on earth. Heaven. However, often times I craved veggies after eating it and wanted to make it a fun at home weeknight recipe!

THIS RECIPE IS AMAZING. I replaced pasta with zoodles because lord knows this meal needed some vegetables and adding some heart healthy fat to the sauce helped this dish out a lot. You will be weirded out by adding mashed avocado to a hot pan but trust me. DO IT.
