Number of Servings: 2


    *Pasta sauce, chunky garden style, Stop & Shop, 2 cup
    Light Cream (coffee cream or table cream), 2 tbsp
    *Crushed Chili Pepper Flakes, 0.5 tsp
    *Grated Fat Free Topping (Parmesan Cheese Replacement), 2 serving
    Spaghetti Squash, 3 cup (1 medium spaghetti squash)
    "Butterball" Turkey Bacon , 2 slices.


Cut the spaghetti squash in half length-wise, scrape out seeds and strings. Set on a microwave safe dish, cut side down and microwave for approx. 8 minutes or until you can easily pierce through with a fork. Set aside.
Fry the bacon slices on medium heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels, then break into small pieces.
Over low heat, pour the marinara sauce into the same pan you fried the bacon (if you’d prefer, you can remove some of the bacon drippings. If you used lean bacon, there shouldn’t be much remaining.) Scrape up the bacon bits to incorporate into the sauce, then add the cream or milk. Warm over low heat, just until the sauce begins to bubble. Turn off the heat, but keep on the burner to keep warm.
Scoop the spaghetti squash out of its shells. Each half of the squash will be one serving. Pile it on the plates like regular spaghetti. Top each serving with half of the sauce, sprinkle with the bacon bits and the Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
