Spaghetti with Spaghetti Squash
One of my easy go to dinners that I always have all the ingredients for is Spaghetti. As a couponer I always have tons of pasta sauce AND pasta. I doctor the sauce up with fresh mushrooms, diced tomatoes, onion, and garlic. Since I am watching calories I had mine with spaghetti squash. I also used ground chicken instead of ground beef. Shhhh…my family had no idea of the substitution!
To make the Spaghetti Squash you need:
1 spaghetti squash
1-2 Tbsp Butter (I used I can’t believe it’s butter)
1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese
1 tsp of Basil
1/2 tsp salt
Cut squash in half. Remove all seeds. Place squash cut side down in baking dish. Pierce the skin with a fork all over. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and scrape out the “spaghetti” with a fork. Toss with the above ingredients while hot. Serve with your favorite sauce. It was absolutely delicious!
