Pasta is usually a cheap meal that everyone loves! It’s fast and easy, but oh so loaded in calories… So how do you have a pasta dish and keep it healthy??
Here is how the dietitian does it!
All you need is spaghetti squash, lean meat, sauce and lots of yummy veggies!
- 3 peppers (yellow, orange, red), chopped
- 1 pound of lean hot/spicy sausage (turkey/beef/chicken)
- Vodka sauce
- 1 spaghetti squash
First you want to slice your spaghetti squash in half, clean out the middle and microwave it for 10-12 minutes. Check out how I do it HERE!
Once you get your squash in the microwave, begin browning your meat. As your meat is browning, add all of your chopped vegetables to your skillet.
Once you’ve sautéed your veggies with your meat a bit, you’ll want to add your vodka sauce and let it simmer until your spaghetti squash is done.
When removing your spaghetti squash from the gourd, be very careful! It should be very hot. Grab a fork and begin scraping out the inside.
Once all squash is removed, scoop out your meat/veggie sauce and voila!
You’ve got yourself a fast, easy, and of course yummy meal!
The meat sauce is always the best part because you can add all types of chopped veggies to it! This time I just grabbed some peppers on sale… But you can chop zucchini, any peppers, onions, or even add broccoli!
