Noodle Substitue! Garlic and olive oil Spaghetti Squash!

only 181 calories a serving, this can replace garlic and olive oil spaghetti. Plus, bonus- it qualifies are your veggies!

Number of Servings: 2


    1 Spaghetti Squash (a.k.a. Winter Squash, Spaghetti)
    3-4 cloves of garlic (minced)
    2 table spoons olive oil
    1/4 cup water
    salt & pepper to taste


Cut squash in half, lengthwise. Scoop out seeds, being careful to preserve as much of the inside as possible. In a casserole dish (Spray with Pam), like squash face down, add 1/4 cup of water. 
Bake at 375 for 30 minutes, then turn squash over and cook for another 30 minutes or until soft.
As squash is cooling, sautee garlic and olive oil in pan. 
Using a serving fork, scrape squash out and into the pan with the garlic and olive oil. (Using long strokes, the fork should make the squash come out in long, thin, spaghetti like strands. 
Cook for another 3-5 minutes. (Until Garlic is the color you like best!) Add salt and pepper. 
This serves 2 people as a main course, 4 as a side dish. (Kids love to be the "squash scraper") 

Number of Servings: 2
