Spaghetti Squash Lasagna
Because we ALL love lasagna but not the ton of carbs that come with it. So here’s a clean and healthy solution. The carbs and sugars will vary depending on the marinara you choose but an estimate is below

Cook Time 1 hr 17 mins
Total Time 1 hr 32 mins
Servings 4 Servings
1 small spaghetti squash (approx. 3½ to 4 lbs.)
Nonstick cooking spray
4 cups all-natural marinara sauce
3 cups part-skim ricotta cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
¼ cup finely chopped fresh basil (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
2. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
3. Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Remove seeds and membrane.
4. Place spaghetti squash, cut side down, on baking sheet. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until tender.
5. Reduce oven temperature to 350º F.
6. Scrape spaghetti squash flesh into stringy noodles.

8. Evenly layer half spaghetti squash, half marinara sauce, and half ricotta cheese in baking dish. 9. Repeat with second layer.

Who says you can’t enjoy sumner, stay in shape and have an adult beverage too 🍸🍹🥃? Here are some of my faves
And remember, I don’t condone diet sodas, energy drinks, etc BUT it’s ok once in a while, just like anything else (i.e., 🍩🍔🌮🌭🍟🍦🍭🍫). I usually opt for plain soda water in my drinks but below are some other options too
Opting for diet sodas lowers the sugars, which is what makes cocktails so high in calories so you’re swapping one evil 😈 out for the other but it’s ok 😉. Soda water when you can & when you can’t, enjoy one or two w/ diet & call it a day .
Here ya go:
Tequila (duh!), soda water, fresh squeezed lime , a packet of stevia & ice. Most bars & restaurants use agave but by adding stevia instead it’s only about 75-100 cals & 5 grams of sugar vs over 500 calories & 40+ grams of sugar in the reg margs
🥃Rum & Diet Coke🥃
Run, Diet Coke or Pepsi & ice. That’s it. Same as rum & coke but about 150 fewer calories & 25 or fewer grams of sugar
🍸Diet Red Bull & Vodka🍸
Diet Red Bull, vodka & ice. Yes, I know, an energy drink. No they aren’t good for you, but neither is diet soda, dessert, bacon, etc. Once in a while AND moderation (1 not 5 lol) won’t kill you & if you’re going out when you’ve had a long day & you’re tired, this will help
Rosie’s like juice OR simple syrup, vodka or tequila & ice. That’s it, guilt free, clean & about 150 cals
Vermouth & gin with an olive & that’s it! Only about 175 calories & minimal sugars from the alcohol
Soda water, sugar, muddled mint leaves 🌱 & 🍈 like. About 160 cals & 10-15 grams of sugars depending on the amount of sugar added. Ask for lightly sweetened
Grapefruit juice, soda, lime 🍈 & ice 👌🏼. Simple & easy & only about 160 calories. Skip the sugar around the rim to minimize sugars & cals
Bourbon w/ a splash of bitters for flavor & ice + a bit of sugar IF desired only
Just soda, vodka & fresh squeezed lime 🍈. Less than 100 cals
Only 90 cals! Less than wine 🍷 & most mixed drinks
🍸Gin & Tonic🍸
Like the name says, just like the name says
