A Low Carb Pasta moment!

This week I am writing a script about repaying your student loans. This is for a few weeks from now.  Needless to say, this is a stressful subject.  So much to explain in under 3 minutes!  It just makes me want to eat a giant bowl of PASTA! What’s a low carb College Money Mom to do?  Why, cut up a spaghetti squash, of course! Voila! Low Carb Pasta!

You know you want some! Do this:

Cut a spaghetti squash in half. Scrape out the seeds and other goopy stuff,  leaving the rind intact.

Cut it in quarters and put it in a microwaveable cooking bowl. Put in an inch or two of water. Cover and nuke for 10-12 minutes on high.

It’s done when you can poke a fork through the rind material and it starts to shred easily. Drain and put the pieces aside to cool a bit. When you can hold them comfortably, remove all the shreds of cooked rind. Guess what it looks like? Yup, spaghetti! Yay!

You can eat it plain or with spaghetti sauce. I like to add melted butter (real butter please), salt , a little garlic powder, and a generous crank of my favorite black pepper.  Back to work now…see you on Youtube!
