Wow! It’s been WAY too long since I posted anything! Life suddenly got crazy once the holidays rolled around, but that’s no excuse. I will try to post at least one new recipe or money-saving idea each week from now on! My newest is for spaghetti squash casserole. I think I may like this one even more than the cauliflower pizza I posted about last time. So yummy and so healthy … and really economical. My entire family loved it. My 2 year old even wanted seconds! If you are a fellow Take Shape for Life or Medifast client, this will fit the requirements of your lean and green meal for the day (makes 4 servings, but you’ll come out a little short on your veggies, so add another veggie serving to your meal). Enjoy!
4c cooked spaghetti squash (1 medium-large spaghetti squash – about $4-5)
8oz low-moisture part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese (on sale for $1.99)
2c sugar-free salt-free tomato puree (canned): or make home-made (I actually used sugar-free spaghetti sauce, which I bought on sale 3/$5, so this was about 75 cents worth)
12oz cooked 95-97% fat-free ground beef or ground turkey ($3-4)
2 healthy fats (2tsp of olive oil added to the sauce, for example)
Italian seasoning, salt & pepper to taste
