spaghetti sqash

Tonight’s dinner…..Spaghetti Squash with Ragu!!!  Spaghetti Squash is a great substitute for pasta if you’re not feeling carbs.  It’s quite easy to make!  

To cook the Spaghetti Squash, I just cut it in half, scraped out all the seeds and pulp, and boiled it for about 20 min.  Once it’s cooked, use a fork to separate the strands (stern to stern).  For the sauce, I just sauteed some onions, then I added in ground turkey breast that I seasoned with some herbs, and some mushrooms.  Let them cook down a bit and then I added a bottle of Ragu.  I find that pre-made Spaghetti sauce can sometimes be a bit bland so I just added some herbs to add more flavor.

There are also other ways to cook a Spaghetti Squash which can be found here http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/cooking/a/spagsquash.htm

Enjoy!!
