You would think after a large bowl of creamy and cheesy polenta our comfort food craving would be satisfied. Well, think again!
After returning home from sunny Florida where I feasted on frozen yogurt, fresh fish and salads, and green juice, the cold weather here has me craving more comfort. And what is more comforting than a pan of piping hot lasagna?
I was debating whipping up a batch of our mushroom and spinach lasagna roll ups, but two spaghetti squash taking up space on my counter were staring me in the face. And as we’ve shown you before, these golden strands of squash make a perfect stand in for pasta noodles.
The usual meat heavy red sauce is lightened up with soy ground round, some fresh veggies, and fresh basil. Low fat cottage cheese and mozzarella add that cheesy goodness to replace the typical white sauce. And come on – who doesn’t love getting their own personal edible lasagna boat??
The slightly crunchy texture of the spaghetti squash tastes so delicious mixed with the tangy sauce and creamy filling.
Your own personal bowl of comfort that will leave you feeling satisfied and full, without the need for a post-food coma nap.
