Guiltless Spaghetti Salad (C1) [B2B]
Recipe from and posted with permission: 17 Day Diet Sharing Recipes Facebook Page at:
Note: if you are on cycle 3, you may add a few whole wheat spaghetti noodles to this dish (as a GARNISH). This dish is also good when paired with spaghetti squash (also allowed on cycle 3).
1/3 package of ground turkey (Simmie note: I figured 7 ounces)
dried garlic chips
1/4 medium sized onion, finely chopped
italian basil-oregano tomato paste (Simmie note: I figured 1/2 cup)
1/4 head cauliflower, finely chopped (you can put more cauliflower in the dish if you like, up to 1/2 head) [Simmie note: I figured 2 cups]
1 can tomato sauce
packaged coleslaw mix (Simmie note: I figured one 16-oz bag)
Brown ground turkey with garlic and chopped onion in a deep saute pan (I use a nonstick wok for this dish).
Stir in finely chopped cauliflower (you may also add chopped green bell peppers if you wish) and saute for 5-10 minutes til the cauliflower picks up a little color.
Stir in 1/4 small can of tomato paste (or approximately 2 tablespoons) and mix thoroughly. Add in 1 large (16 oz.) can of tomato sauce. Here, you may add additional dry spices (oregano, basil, black pepper) if you prefer a spicier flavor to your dish.
If you are on cycle 3, you may boil up a few whole wheat spaghetti noodles per person for this dish. It is not necessary though, if you are on cycles 1 or 2 or are eating after 2 pm.
Fill a deep pasta bowl with 3/4 cup of shredded coleslaw mix. Top with a generous scoop of turkey marinara, and garnish with whole wheat pasta (if applicable for your cycle) and fat free parmesan cheese.
