(Not quite Alfredo...) I made my first spaghetti squash last night, and had two servings left over. The first was great with ground turkey & taco seasoning on top. Tonight the store had small cooked shrimp on sale, so I grabbed 7 ounces and starting inventing. After I pulled 1oz of tails off, I realized I should have gotten the full half-pound of shrimp.

I put the two servings of squash in a small frying pan, tossed the cooked shrimp on top, and let my friend Emeril kick things up a few notches. At the end I melted in two wedges of Laughing Cow Light. In hindsight I should have left the squash to the end, since it mostly disintegrated. It did have a little remaining sweetness to balance out the Emeril and cheese though.

(whoops, sorry the photo is so big, first time posting one here).

So this is 1 lean, 2 green, 1 healty fat (right?) which left me a bowl of lettuce and Paul Newman dressing..

Tomorrow I'm trying either the turnip fries or the radish fries... that's why I went to the store in the first place!..

Looks good! Might have to give this a try. I am going to cook my spaghetti squash tomorrow and make mini meatballs to get with it!..

This does look yummy! but isnt LC off plan??..

Comment #2

Nutrition says that while they don't "recommend LC" it "may be used as a healthy fat". You know how that goes. I stopped using it because after I looked at it and argued a while about it, I realized it really has too many calories considering the small amount of fat. 70 cals per two triangles of the lite version...

Ya I thought so.. I LOVE laughing cow.. in fact I have some in my fridge right now.. I could see maybe using a small sliver of it perhaps in my chili to make it a bit creamier but I couldnt imagine using two whole wedges.. I just have too much weight to lose to be splurging like that..

Comment #4

I've only made spagetti squash once in my life and didn't like it (with tomato sauce, soy meatballs, and cheese). Now that I'm on MF, maybe I'll give this recipe a try...

Comment #5

I was originally going to make the shrimp thing without the LC light... But that left me needing two healthy fats, and I didn't want to drink a lot of salad dressing or olive oil. Didn't have any olives sitting around either. This was also the last two wedges in the box, and it seemed like a good way to get rid of them. The first time I used it was trying the zucchini stirfry...

Comment #6

What do you mean "Emeril"? I assume it's a mixture of spices? Do you know what spices were actually used?..

Comment #7

Emeril Lagasse is a chef/restaurateur/TV personality/marketer guy. He's got a line of spice mixes - today I happened to grab his Bayou Blast variety from my spice rack. Salt, paprika, garlic, cayenne, black pepper, mustard and "other spices". Per 1/2tsp, it's 0 cal, 0 fat, 0 carb, 0 protien, and...... 296mg sodium...

Comment #8

Per Medifast Nutrisystem 35g's (3 Tbsp's + 1 tsp) of Classico's Alfredo sauce can be used as 1 healthy fat. I sent them the nutrition information and asked if it was similar to the guidelines of salad dressings that are a HF and the response was yes. Yeah, it's delish. I make alfredo once or twice a week with zucchini ribbons...

Comment #9

I also like Walden Farm's Alfredo Sauce - I use it as my condiments - I'll be honest, I was kinda scared at first. I mean zero EVERYTHING except sodium - how good could it be?!?! But it was delicious. I used it on zucchini ribbons and some MSF Chikn Strips and made Chicken Alfredo..

Thanks. I know who Emeril is, but had no idea about what products he puts out and what's in them...
