You know that I am no stranger to swapping out pasta for veggies. Zucchini Lasagna anyone? Or how about this tasty zoodle recipe? Well, I am really trying to get back on track with my diet and exercise (because this baby weight is not going to lose itself, unfortunately.) Using Spaghetti Squash is a tasty and easy way to get more veggies, and less carbs in your diet. You can eat a ton of this spaghetti squash dinner and not feel guilty about loading up on all that pasta!
Additionally, PH has finally admitted he may have gluten sensitivity issues. There is gluten free pasta out there, and you can hunt down a quality brand that doesn't immediately taste like cardboard. Spaghetti Squash tastes so much better! Everyone loves Spaghetti for dinner, and with Spaghetti Squash pasta it is back on the menu in our house!
Cooking spaghetti squash for this spaghetti squash dinner is super easy. Follow the pictures below to see how!
With your squash all ready, you just need to cook your meat and sauce as you normally would for a spaghetti dinner. I used lean ground beef this time. You could also use turkey meat if you'd like.
Here is how I do it:
Spaghetti Meat Sauce
1. Brown 1 pound lean ground beef with 1/4 cup white onion in a skillet.
2. When meat is cooked add in one can tomato sauce.
3. Season with salt, pepper, garlic, and Italian seasoning.
4. Let simmer about 10 minutes.
5. Serve over spaghetti squash noodles
6. Top with Parmesan cheese
Your spaghetti squash will make a lot of noodles. You can eat more and fill up on veggies. We still had plenty of leftovers, so guess what I ate for lunch the next day?
