Recipe: (serves 4)

Spaghetti Squash is a healthy alternative to noodles for spaghetti.

Step 1: Cook 1 spaghetti squash alone in the slow cooker (yields ~6 cups)

  • Prick the outside of the squash 10 times and place in a slow cooker with 1/2 cup water.
  • Cook on high for 2.5 hours (or until it's soft).
  • Remove squash. Place on cutting board. Once cooled (~15 min), cut the squash in half lengthwise. Scoop the seeds from the cavity and discard them. Shred the flesh from the skin with a fork to make the strands. Place in a strainer to drain excess moisture. Blot dry.
  • Place the strands into a bowl and place in the fridge.

Step 2: Place the following into a slow cooker for 6-8 on low.

  • 1 pound (16 oz) extra lean ground beef
  • 1 can (14.5oz) Hunts diced tomato (no salt added)
  • 1/4 cup pesto sauce
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn

Step 3:

  • Reheat the spaghetti squash in the microwave
  • Divide the squash into 4 bowls (~1.5 cups per bowl)
  • Place 1/4 of the contents in the slow cooker on top of the squash in each bowl.
  • optional: top with basil and parmesan cheese (not included in macros).
