Roasted Broccoli and Spaghetti Squash Wednesday, October 03, 2012, 08:23 PM



I wanted a big but very low point meal. This is what I ended up with. I roasted the brocollu in the oven (425 for about 25-30 min, rotated once). As usual, it was awesome. I love brocolli like this.

For the spaghetti quash, I tried something difference. I halved it raw (no easy task, BTW), and scooped out the seeds cold. I then pammed it, put some salt and pepper on, thenmicrowavedit (cut side up). I started with 8 minutes but ended up adding like 6 more. The advantage of cutting it first was that I didn't have toscoopout the seeds of a hot squash. And, I felt like more came off the skin.

I made a pretty standard tomato sauce. Half an onion, some garlic, 28 oz can of diced tomatoes and a full can of paste. I added two frozen basil cubes (not sure if I could taste them), lots or oregano and driedparsley, plus otherseasonings. I also added some balsamic vinegar and soy sauce. Finally, I added siracha to kick up the spice!

All in all, the meal was HUGE but almost no points. Really, the only points came from the small amount of oil on thebroccoliand the onions.
