I surfed the web for baked spaghetti recipes to try to find a healthy one. There were several but none that seemed just right for me. I created this recipe. It makes 6 large servings at just 306 calories each. You could use fat free cheese I suppose but sometimes that doesn’t melt. I used part skim.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray.
Cook half a box (6 oz) of multigrain or wheat spaghetti. I used Market Basket multigrain Plus angel hair. Any brand will do but use angel hair pasta.
I bought a package of lean turkey sausage, Italian style (with spices). The package was 20 oz-6 links so I took one out and used 5. Use just a pound of sausage.
Take the sausage out of the skins and fry in cooking spray. When browned, add the tomato, (well drained) and spices. When the pasta is done, drain that an add it to the pan. Mix through and pour half the sausage/pasta/tomato mix into the casserole dish. Sprinkle half a cup of shredded cheese. Pour the rest of the pasta/sausage mix in and cover with cheese.
Cover in foil and bake for 20-25 minutes.
