Better then pasta and low in carbs!!

Better then pasta and low in carbs!!  Yes thats right!  Sometimes you just want warm, comforting pasta right?  Well, thats fine except when you want to eat healthy, lose weight and get the nutrients that your body really wants.  There are many different pasta alternatives that can satisfy your pasta craving.  Heres one option:

Butternut Squashta!

Prep and cook time: 10 min


1 large onion

5 cloves garlic

1 large butternut squash

1 small beet

2 slices cheese (any)

1 cup tomato sauce (can use can, jar or make fresh)




Fresh basil for garnish

Oil for frying

Fry onion and garlic in a small amount of oil.  I like coconut, but you can use any.  Peel squash.  Then continue to peel the inside of the squash so the pieces you will cook look like thin very wide pasta noodle.  Grate one beet. Add squash and beet to the fried onions and garlic.  Lightly fry for 5 min all together.  Add, spices, sauce and cheese and leave on a low flame for 3 min.  Thats it!  Eat and enjoy!

Leave out the cheese for vegans.
