When spiralized veggies first graced the Pinterest-board airwaves and shelves of the freezer aisle, they basically changed pasta-lovers’ lives forever; no longer was the carb-heavy dish reserved for just special occasions and pre-marathon suppers. The innovation allowed spaghetti slurpers to get their fix—the healthy way—on the gluten-free reg. However, if the zucchini strands alone don’t quite satisfy you noodle cravings, Jessica Alba has one solution to offer.

In a recent Instagram story, the actress and founder of The Honest Company shared the mouthwatering hack she uses to add a little oomph to her zoodles: She combines them with normal pasta before topping off the whole creation with olive oil, ground turkey, and Parmesan. And adorably, her daughter Haven calls the dish “Mama pasta.”

Alba combines zoodles with standard or alt-pasta before topping off the whole creation with olive oil, ground turkey, and Parmesan.

To invoke Alba’s genius the next time you serve up a spiralized creation, try combining the veggie strands with regular noodles or your favorite alt-pasta option (like gluten-freechickpea, or tofu shirataki) in a 1:2 or 1:3 ratio. The result will be a hearty, healthy dish that’ll help you squeeze in an extra serving of veggies and save an extra serving of your dried-fettuccine supply. Meaning, even more pasta is in your future.

This is how Alba kick-starts her morning workouts, and this is the breakfast smoothie that she and her daughters love
