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 do exist!”  So, I introduce to you “the cousin”. You could make this as an appetizer by stuffing mini button mushrooms, a side dish, or having it as the main attraction. You can have 1 for 3pp … or 2 for 5pp. Yes, I’ll take the latter … Continue reading “skinny spinach & artichoke dip stuffed portabellas”

Who has leftover egg roll wrappers?? I do!

I could have made more s’more egg rolls, but something savory was in the stars for the rest of them 🙂 This lasagna is easy to throw together (like most of my meals) and it’s only 5pp for a serving! All thanks to using egg roll wrappers instead of lasagna noodles and making your own (super simple) tomato sauce. Awesome!
