No Pasta No Pasta No pasta!
Get your carb fix with this quick and easy recipe.
Medium spaghetti squash
Lean ground meat
Tomato sauce of choice (again we use Trader Joe’s)
Low fat cheeses of your choice ( we like ricotta, cheddar, mozzarella, and cottage cheese)
First wash your squash, poke holes around.
Lay in microwavable dish and cook for 8-10 min depending on size. You want to be able to poke knife easily through squash.
Next brown your ground meat, drain, add tomato sauce to your liking.
Now, cut squash open lengthwise. Spoon out the seeded area in center.
Brush olive oil along inside of squash and fluff sides with a fork.
Now layer meat mixture and cheeses… Layer away.
Last layer should be mozzarella / cheddar.
Put halves in oven a cook until cheese melts.
Allow to cool for a bit and enjoy your pasta free Lasagna fix!!
( I like to refer to this as lasagna boat- Jenn )
Now tell us how it comes out!!
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 egg whites
1 tsp Italian seasoning
Toppings of choice: low fat cheeses, meat, veggies, low fat marinara -We like Trader Joe’s Organic tomato basil marinara sauce:) We love all things Trader Joe’s.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Combine cauliflower with garlic and add to food processor, blend until crumbled to about rice size.
Microwave the cauliflower mix 8-10 min. Cool slightly. Now use those arm muscles to squeeze out excess water. Be sure to get as much as you can out!
Stir this mixture with the rest of ingredients.
Form into crust and bake alone about 15-20 min, until golden.
Now add healthy pizza sauce and toppings of choice: load up on those veggies too!
Bake an additional 10 min and enjoy:)
