Pasta is a staple for many, yet not always great for your waist! So here is an amazing, easy, and most importantly yummy, super healthy alternative!
Spaghetti squash with RED BELL PEPPER SAUCE!
Here is the how and why!
Being high in Vitamin A, C and folate, rich in antioxidants and omega 3’s, spaghetti squash is nutrient dense, meaning it is low in calories and high in nutrients.
Red Bell Peppers are loaded with Vitamin C, 200% of RDI! They are rich in vitamin B6, folate and high in lycopene!
• 6-8 Red Peppers
• 1 large Spaghetti squash or two small
• Fresh basil (to taste)
• Chopped Scallions (to taste)
• Pink Himalayan sea salt (to taste)
• Pepper (to taste)
• Two gloves of garlic
• Olive oil
• Coconut oil spray or the like
Cut the spaghetti squash in half long ways, gut with a fork and pull out the seeds and spray with coconut or olive oil and salt. Place face down and cook for 30 minutes at 400° or until top is brownish. Cool and use a fork from the top and pull down to the bottom until all is out in a bowl!
