Spaghetti Pie! I have been craving spaghetti for ages, but it never really seems to fit into my calorie-mindful lifestyle. Until I found this recipe!
This is another recipe from my Comfort Food Diet cookbook. (Click here for the recipe.) First I made a meat sauce with lean ground sirloin, onion, green pepper, diced tomatoes, tomato paste and seasonings.
Next I made layers.
Spaghetti Angel Hair pasta mixed with egg whites, parmesan cheese, and butter.
2. Fat-free cottage cheese.
3. Meat sauce.
4. Mozzarella cheese (added the last 5 minutes of baking).
Sooooo good! I love this recipe. One-sixth of the above dish is the serving size, with 348 calories per serving. I had one serving and found it to be a very generous and filling serving size.
I served the spaghetti pie with my favorite salad, consisting of a mix of baby greens and herbs, spinach, and romaine, with sliced pear and avocado, gorgonzola, and a red wine vinaigrette dressing.
Best dinner ever!!
