Mushroom & Spinach Alfredo Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Wow. What a mouthful.

A guilt-free mouthful at that! Spaghetti squash has been a staple in low carb dieting for quite some time. Since it has visual and textural similarities of spaghetti pasta, one could easily sub this low cal veggie for almost any pasta dish. Oh, and talk about having an easy meal, this comes together rather quickly … which as we know, I’m a huge fan of. 🙂

I’ve been meaning to post this since it was such a hit on instagram. Other IGers, such as this lovely gal have recreated this and have been in love ever since. There are other stuffed squash recipes all over Pinterest, but I do love me some mushrooms … and buttery, cheesy alfredo. Mmmm … cheese.

skinny cheesy cauliflower gratin

skinny cheesy cauliflower gratin | my skinny sweet tooth

This is another recipe that came on a whim. I knew my intentions for how it would come out, but I had originally bought a head of cauliflower to make my skinny general tso this week. Well, that was until my husband saw the cauliflower waiting patiently in the fridge and was really wanting to try my recipe. (He works night shift, so he hadn’t tried my general tso yet. Our eating schedules are off … and quite frankly, he likes his meat: chicken, beef, you name it) So I was really excited that he wanted me to save it for this weekend. Awesome!

Instead of having the cauliflower sit in the fridge all week, I decided to roast it up. I also had a 1/2 empty jar of light alfredo sauce that needed used, so that started the wheels to turn and eventually I came up with this. 🙂 It’s garlicky, cheesy, and I’m very happy with how the gratin turned out. It would make a great side dish or even a vegetarian main dish. The portions are a hefty size (which I love 😛 ) but feel free to adjust serving sizes to accommodate you and/or your family.
