Skinny Spaghetti Bolognese

Hi, Jordan’s salty tooth talking (a thing?), and I am obsessed with Skinny Spaghetti Bolognese. So every Christmas Eve growing up, my mom would make the world’s yummiest spaghetti and meatballs. Even though we’d have a second Thanksgiving feast on Christmas day, I was always most excited about the night before. I’m part Italian, so don’t hate! To this day, I still crave spaghetti and meat sauce more than any other meal. In order to crush this craving, I came up with something I could enjoy on the reg.Skinny Spaghetti Bolognese by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogOhhhhh yah. Make this amaze Skinny Spaghetti Bolognese by using the best. kitchen. stuff. ever:

Favorites? I love this cooking set from Anthropologie. Not only is it beautiful, but every pot and pan is the perfect size. I also love that ravioli cutter. There’s nothing like homemade pasta. And finally, please, someone, buy me that gray dining set. My birthday’s in June 😉

Spaghetti squash is a perfect alternative to high-carb grains. At 42 calories a cup, you could eat 4X the amount of spaghetti and have a very similar calorie count. Oh, but spaghetti squash would still have less. Did I mention that it tastes like plain pasta with a little bit of butter? The only difference is the texture. Turkey is also a great alternative to beef. It’s lower in fat content and calories!

World’s Skinniest Spaghetti and Meat Sauce

Calories per serving: 250

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked spaghetti squash (42 calories)
  • 1/4 cup ground turkey (75 calories)
  • 1/2 cup marinara/bolognese sauce of choice (approximately 40/ 50 calories, depending)
  • 1/2 cup fat-free Mozzarella cheese (80 calories)
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Additional seasonings of choice, such as onion powder, garlic powder, dried basil, oregano leaves, etc.
  • An alternative to making your own homemade sauce is purchasing Trader Joe's "Just Sauce" Turkey Bolognese in the frozen section, which I am in total love with (120 calories per 1/2 cup).

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Cook spaghetti squash (which will take time, so prepare ahead). Heat oven to 375F and cook whole for about an hour (after stabbing about 8 - 10 wholes in it with a knife), or cut in half and cook for about 30 minutes. Continue to check on it to avoid burns. For a longer description, refer here!
  3. Cook turkey in pan over medium/high heat until no longer red, chopping up into tiny pieces with a spatula as it cooks. Drain juices and add in marinara sauce. Allow to simmer for 5 - 10 minutes. Add salt, pepper, and other spices to taste.
  4. Pour 1 cup of spaghetti squash into an individual-sized, oven-safe dish. Otherwise, do as I do and make your own with nonstick foil: wrap foil around the base of a mason jar, squeezing it tight so that it forms a round, individual-sized baking "dish." Remove mason jar and use foil for baking.
  5. Add turkey sauce on top of spaghetti. Mix through if desired. I did not.
  6. Add Mozzarella on top of sauce.
  7. Bake for about 7 - 10 minutes, or until cheese is nice and browned.
