17 Minute Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti!

Do you want the great taste of spaghetti without all of the carbs included? This is your recipe! The spaghetti squash pasta, although slightly different in texture, could easily take the place of pasta! Not to mention this recipe is made using only the microwave to cook. It really couldn't get any easier!


1/2 spaghetti squash, seeds removed
1 c. favorite pasta sauce (I use Hunt's, four cheese)
2 Tbs. grated Parmesan cheese

Place the squash half in a microwave safe bowl cut side up. Add two tablespoons of water and cover. Microwave for fifteen minutes. Place the squash on a work surface (using a oven mitt!!) and pour the water out of the bowl that you used in the microwave. Place the squash in your non dominant hand (still with the oven mitt on), and using your other hand, scrape the squash flesh out with a large fork. As you do this, it takes the form of spaghetti! Place the "spaghetti" squash back into the bowl until all of the flesh is scraped out. Add the pasta sauce, stir, cover with the lid and microwave for 35 seconds just to make sure the pasta sauce gets hot. Divide into two serving dishes and top with one tablespoon of the grated Parmesan on each.


(This makes two servings. Each serving is 4 WW points.)
