Opposites Attract

Happy Thursday everyone!! A happy one, indeed. 🙂 Here in Oswego, we often experience all 4 seasons in a single week. Yesterday, it was freezing. We’re talkin’ 30 and snowing. Yes, snow in April! Today on the other hand..

B-E-A-UUUUTIFUL!!

I sat outside in between classes, drove home with the windows down- it’s wonderful

Enough about the weather.. I have a wonderful recipe coming your way!

I love a big saucy bowl of spaghetti, but hate all the calories and carbs that come with it. I’ve seen a lot of pasta replacements- I’m a HUGE fan of spaghetti squash- but last night, I discovered a new one!

Broccoli Slaw “Pasta” with Meat Sauce

  • 2 cups broccoli slaw (prepackaged)
  • 4 oz ground turkey
  • 2 T chopped onion
  • 1 t minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup mushrooms
  • Kalamata olives

In a saucepan, cook ground turkey until browned, then add onion, mushrooms and garlic. Sauté until onions are cooked through. Add tomato sauce and continue to cook until sauce is heated. Put to the side.

In a separate pan, sauté the slaw until tender. You want it cooked, but not mushy! I cooked it on a crappy electric burner, so it took a little longer. But on a decent stove, it should take about 5-7 minutes.

Pour in a bowl, top with meat and sauce mixture, olives, parmesan cheese or your desired toppings.

And while I was making this for myself, I was also making the boyfriend this…

That, my friends, is a spaghetti sandwich. While I DID manage to get him to switch to wheat bread, Tom has very little interest in eating healthy. It definitely drives me crazy sometimes, but I know my eating habits annoy him too. They say opposites attract, and when it comes to our eating habits, we are definitely opposites.

I have to admit, I do love making these crazy creations for him. I tried a bite, and it was actually pretty darn good.
