Skinny Baked Spaghetti

Skinny Baked Spaghetti

Skinny, quick, and delish!  I love anything pasta. This past week we wanted a pasta meal so I decided to make Skinny Baked Spaghetti. 

You will need:

-Ground Meat (93% lean or deer meat) 
-Any kind of Fat Free Cheese
-Mrs. Dash Italian Seasoning

Boil pasta and brown meat as usual.  Instead of adding butter or salt to the pasta, shake some Mrs. Dash Italian Seasoning to help the noodles not stick.  Add to meat as well.

Did you know that if you place a wooden spoon over your pot it will prevent water from boiling over. (Thanks Pinterest)

When the meat is cooked thoroughly, add any No Sodium or Low Sodium Spaghetti Sauce.  Add more Mrs. Dash Seasoning to taste.

I purchased this at my local Ingles.  Low Sodium sauce that had less than 30mg or sodium for 1/2 cup.  Flavor is wonderful!

I usually add plain noodles on the bottom with a little fat free cheese on top to have the noodles stick.

Mix, meat sauce and noodles and layer in a baking dish.  Add Fat Free cheese on top.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 min until bubbly.

This is an easy go to meal without the calories, fat, and sodium than your normal spaghetti dish.

Cheers to Healthy Eating!
