Everyone loves a good pasta dish, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find one that is low-cal and not loaded with carbs. However, if you replace spaghetti with spaghetti squash you can enjoy many of your favorite pasta dishes without breaking the calorie bank. Delizioso!
1 medium spaghetti squash (about 2 pounds)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
1 medium onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
Grated parmesan or mozzarella cheese (optional)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Halve the squash lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Sprinkle the cut sides with 1/2 teaspoon salt, then brush both sides with olive oil. Put the squash, cut-side down on a baking sheet. Bake for 45-55 minutes until the squash is tender.Meanwhile, cut the sausages into inch round pieces and slice the mushrooms and onions.
