I love spaghetti. Specifically, I love the spaghetti that my mom makes. It’s always been one of my favorite meals, but my husband…he’s not a big fan of spaghetti, so I only make it for lunch during the week and I can’t make a big pot of my favorite sauce or it won’t get eaten. This lightened up spaghetti is easy to make and not too heavy, which is always a good thing for lunch, in my opinion.
How I Lighten Up My Spaghetti
I’m a new fan of spaghetti squash, too. I’ve seen it around a lot in the last few years, but only just got up the courage to try it out. The first time I tried it, I didn’t cook it long enough and the texture was a little odd. But cook it a bit longer and it makes a great substitute for noodles, and it’s filling, too. My spaghetti sauce is simple, just crushed tomatoes, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, crushed red pepper, and ground turkey. You don’t have to include the turkey, but I always seem to need the extra protein to get through the day.
