Almost Pasta Primavera
Yield: 6 servings
3 1/2 lb Spaghetti squash; 1 medium
1 c Broccoli flowerets; fresh
1 c Zucchini; small, sliced
1 c Mushrooms; fresh, sliced
1 c Carrot; sliced
1 Clove garlic; small, crushed
3/4 ts Reduced calorie margarine melted
1 tb Skim milk;
1/2 c Part skim ricotta cheese;
1 tb Parmesan cheese;
1/2 ts Imitation butter flavoring;
1/4 ts Salt;
1/2 ts Italian seasoning;
1/8 ts Coarsely ground pepper;
Wash squash; cut in half lengthwise and discard seeds. Place squash, cut side down, in a
Dutch oven; add 2 inches water. Bring water to a boil, cover and cook 20 minutes or until
squash is tender.
Drain squash and cool. Using a fork remove spaghetti-like strands. Measure 3 cups of
strands; set aside. Remove remaining strands for other use.
Steam vegetables 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain well. Combine squash strands
and vegetables, tossing gently. Cover to keep warm; set aside.
Saute garlic in margarine in a small saucepan; remove from heat. Add milk, cheese, butter
flavoring, and seasonings to saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until
mixture is hot (do not boil).
Spoon cheese mixture over vegetable mixture, tossing gently.
