I have been extremely hot on spaghetti squash. Honestly, it is a fabulous low calorie substitute for one of my all time favorite binge foods, pasta. Fatty. There were always so many recipes that I would overlook just because the main ingredient was pasta. Well not anymore. (OMG, I sound like an infomercial). One of the biggest complaints I always heard about spaghetti squash is that it was cumbersome to cook and prepare. False. Let me just get that out there. Completely false. I slice mine in half and wrap each side in Saran Wrap ( no I do not advertise for them) and microwave each side individually for 9 minutes. Let me tell ya, it comes out the perfect consistency and so easily. Just like spaghetti. Soooo since my door has been opened to so many new recipes while implementing this low calorie pasta solution, I thought I would share them all with you beauties. Feast your eyes. And your face.
Obviously adapted with spaghetti squash...
Also adapted with spaghetti squash.
Another quick and easy recipe I have been utilizing is taking the cooked spaghetti squash and mixing it with wedges of the flavored Skinny Cow Cheese. They come in Garlic and Herb, Cheddar, Mozzarella Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil. List goes on. But just mixing a few wedges, which are 35 calories each, with the spaghetti squash and some salt and pepper, you feel like you are eating macaroni and cheese. I am not even kidding. Guilt free, ladies. You will thank me later.
Have a FABULOUS weekend! I know I will enjoy mine packing knick knacks and paddiwhacks. Stella may or may not help. Follow on Twitter to find out. Loves!
