Pasta may be delicious, but it’s not exactly diet-friendly. To conquer your carb cravings the healthy way, try one of our favorite substitutes: Spaghetti squash!
When the “meat” is scraped out of the shell after cooking, it naturally shreds, resembling spaghetti. Add your favorite pasta sauce and the results are truly satisfying.
Here’s a recipe we love from Bethenny Frankel:
Easy, Healthy Spaghetti Squash
- 1 medium to large spaghetti squash
- 3 T C store bought pesto
- 1 T toasted pine nuts (quickly warm in pan until golden)
- 3 T shredded parmesan or asiago or grana padana cheese
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 1 T shredded fresh basil
Sound delicious? It is. Go here for full directions. Bon appetit!
