So I have heard about spaghetti squash but I had never actually seen it…until I went to HEB and saw a tasty sample kiosk featuring it. I thought what the heck…I’m always up for trying something different.
So tonight was the night to try it and it was REALLY good. I am blessed with a husband who will try anything I cook at least once…he ended up liking it! I promised I wouldn’t completely replace pasta but he was pleased with the outcome.
I was really pleased with how easy it was!
Step one: slice the squash length wise and scope out the seeds and stringy mess in the middle (like a pumpkin)
Step two: brush with olive oil and bake at 350 for 40 mins.
Step three: carefully (it’s hot) use a fork to scrape the meat from the shell…creating the noodle like contents
Step four: add contents to complete meal…tonight we had marinara with black olive and artichoke hearts topped with baked salmon = amazing!!!
A typical serving of whole wheat pasta is about 210 calories…a serving of spaghetti squash is 45 calories!
What is your favorite meal that is low cal?
