One of my favorite no carb dishes is roasted spaghetti squash. I’ve tried steaming it and microwaving it, but the recipe in Everyday Foods is the best! The problem I’ve had in the past with spaghetti squash was it was always too crunchy, but not with roasting, it turns out perfect. Top it with a quick healthy pasta sauce, add a tossed salad and you have a healthy, delicious, low calorie meal.

This pasta sauce is a quicker version of the Cook’s Illustrated Simple Tomato Sauce. I think it’s great!
