Recipe Reblog: Clean Eating Spaghetti Pie

Does that recipe title make you a little nervous? It shouldn't. To eat clean means to eat little to no processed foods and focus on whole foods. It's better for you and healthier too.

Clean Eating Spaghetti Pie: I had really high hopes for this recipe. The crust is formed from spaghetti "noodles" that are actually spaghetti squash. If you've never had spaghetti squash, TRY IT! It's super easy to make. Just poke holes through the skin, roast for about an hour at 375 - slice in half, scoop out seeds and then drag your fork over the flesh to pull out the strands. Do this part ahead of time. Squash strands get mixed with ricotta an egg and some seasoning. Then, ground turkey is browned and tossed with your favorite jarred pasta sauce. Layer it, bake it, serve it. YUM! I will say that she recommends using a 9 inch pie plate. Well, my squash was 4 lbs and I had to use a 9x13 pan. This made a LOT, which was okay by me. If you're trying to eat clean or cut back on refined carbs, this is the one for you! It really does seem like you're just eating spaghetti and noodles.
