So, I recently discovered a great and fast way to eat spaghetti squash and mentioned to one of my friends that I had just had it for lunch. She said she was so intimidated by it she had never actually tried to cook it. This didn’t surprise me, as I just tried to cook it for the first time this year. I think it can be intimidating for most. I’m here to tell you, this is so easy, great for kids to help out with, and so yummy and low in points!
1 spaghetti squash
1 8oz can roasted garlic tomato paste
1 8oz can tomato sauce
garlic salt to taste
Stab the squash a few times with a fork and nuke it in the microwave on high for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the tomato paste, sauce, and garlic salt in a small saucepan. Cook on low until heated through.
When squash is done, remove with pot holders and carefully cut in half lengthwise. Carefully remove seeds with a fork. Now comes the fun part! Using the fork, scrape out the inside into a bowl. It will resemble spaghetti.
Top with tomato sauce and voila!
I don’t know how many points this is, but 1/2 of a squash is 0 points and I’m sure the tomato sauce can’t be more than 1 or 2 points.
