“Spaghetti and Meatballs” (Yup, the quotes ARE necessary Smile)

HPIM1579

Ingredients (not quite the official recipe because I literally THREW it together Smile)

  • One small Spaghetti Squash
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1-1.5 cup Boca Crumbles
  • 2 small cans of unsalted tomato sauce
  • 1 cup low fat Ricotta Cheese
  • 3 cups of Kale
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • a pinch or two of Italian seasoning

Directions

Preheat Oven to 375 degrees.   Slice Spaghetti squash in half length-wise.  Scrape out insides and remove seeds (but save those if you want to roast them!).  Lightly coat a baking dish with cooking spray, place squash halves rind side up.  Bake for about 30-40 minutes until you can poke through the squash pretty easily with a fork.

Heat the olive oil in a pan, chop the onion, and then sauté it Smile.  Cook the Boca Crumbles according to the package, and then combine with the onions.  Add in the tomato sauce, ricotta cheese, kale, and the salt/spices.  Allow to come to a simmer.

Once squash is cooked, let it cool for about 10-15 minutes, rind side down.  Scrape the strands out of the squash by running a fork down the middle.

Combine all in a bowl and eat away!! Smile 

 

Hope your weekend was fun as well!!!!
