WOE: Whatever plan keeps me around 150 lbs!
My light Alfredo is 40 calories per 1/4 cup. I thought it was Bertolli, but I could be wrong. It's so good on zoodles with a little ground garlic salt.

Spaghetti squash can be cooked several different ways, but I'd google Microwaving Spaghetti Squash. I know I've seen ways to do it without even having to cut it in half first. I think you need to pierce it though, so it doesn't explode.

I've been LOVING my zoodles since I got my Spirelli last week. I've been having them on both UDs and DDs. Today I think I'm going to try zoodles with marinara and Jones' ham for dinner with some shaved parmesan. I have to make it to the store though, as I'm out of zucchini!

Spaghetti squash! That sounds so good. I nuke mine after cutting in half, I lay it face down in about an inch of water - never tried nuking it whole, but you would have to pierce it first.

Love my spiralizer also - zoodles are so good!

I cut mine in half and put a couple triangle shaped cuts in the edge so that the steam can come out. That way it won't rock in the microwave. It takes less water this way, too.

This is another recipe I tweaked (a lot) from Ginny's 2 minute donut recipe.

Dry Ingredients:
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon dark cocoa powder
1 Tablespoon of Sweetener (I use xylitol)
1 teaspoon of instant coffee
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Wet Ingredients
1 teaspoon sugar free/calorie free syrup or water
1 large egg

Mix dry ingredients, mix together with the wet ingredients. I cooked mine in my GT xpress redi-set-go muffin pans, but you can make it in mini muffin tin. Bake 7-9 minutes.

Entire Recipe: 122 calories

I tried making it with just egg white, but they fell sort of flat. These are really good!

Makes 6 mini cupcakes.

Frosting: 2 Tablespoons of Walden Farm Caramel Syrup makes really good calorie frosting.
I realize this is an old post, but I am going in the kitchen very soon to make these. Sounds like a great recipe for this gal's down day today!

Not quite what I expected, but not bad. I didn't use a T of sweetner, I used 8 drops of liquid sucralose, so that may be why they seem a little "sharp" or it could be all in my head, knowing I'm eating a parmesan "treat"

I made a tray of them, so they will get eaten, probably with the Walden s.f. syrup. the batch I did made 8, so I have 16 (15 now...since I had to sample)

They are cute lil things and come out of the oven looking like the picture....all dark & chocolaty...

I don't think I would make these again....maybe the brand of parmesan I use, but I had another one and it tasted very salty. Maybe it wasn't mixed enough....dunno. Dh said it was too sweet.

I realize this is an older post, but I wonder how you make the cheesy rice? I looked on your website and didn't see it. Thanks..
It is for post #76. The wrong one printed.

Low Carbin' Made Simple: Cheesy Miracle Rice

Ingredients:
2 bags rinsed Miracle Rice
1/2 cup Ragu Double Cheese sauce
1 large egg
6tbsp grated parmesan cheese
3tbsp "I can't believe it's not butter" (yeah yeah I know, i haven't used this stuff in 3 years, but I'm trying to reduce calories for a bit)
2tsp yellow mustard
2tsp franks hot sauce
1tsp garlic powder
1tsp salt
1tsp pepper

Put the rinsed rice in a dry hot pan and let the liquid cook out. Add garlic powder to rice and mix well. While the rice is drying out, in a bowl mix cheese sauce, mustard, hot sauce, egg, salt & pepper, and half the parmesan cheese. I used a small loaf pan to bake it in. Add half the rice in the baking dish, then half the cheese, then the rest of the rice and rest of the cheese. Mix everything very well. Add the "i can't believe it's not butter" in dabs across the top, and cover with the remaining parmesan cheese. Bake @350* for about 20 minutes.

Makes 4 pretty good size servings@
136 calories/11.76g fat/2.74g carbs/.2g fiber/2.55g net carbs

Or if you are hungry and want to use it as a main dish, you could get 2 huge servings@
272 calories/23.52g fat/5.48g carbs/.4g fiber/5.1g net carbs

This was an experiment, so I think I could leave out the egg and "I can't believe it's not butter" and it would come out the same. Reducing the calories to 84 per 4 servings and the carbs to 2.65g.

Thanks Ms. Woods! I think I would also leave out those two items. I will check on the ingredients on the Ragu sauce to see if it will work for me.

Sure looks yummy.

I will find another method of doing the cheese sauce, but it is a good idea!

I use salsa con queso for a cheesy sauce. 2T is 40 calories.

I would like to find one that does not have soybean oil, corn oil, or other vegetable oils, modified food/corn starch, msg, or other such ingredients. Don't know if it is possible though.

May be satisfied with some real cheese sprinkled on top.

Pacific makes a natural salsa con queso that is available at WF. Having the same concerns as you I have tried it. I guess salsa con queso fits into the 10% of non primal foods that I will allow myself, because I didn't like it at all.

I would just use real cheese, sharp cheddar. Maybe some diluted hwc or half and half to make a sauce.

I like quick and easy. Lol.

I know I've posted this many times before, but I'm sitting here eating this 110 calorie bowl of deliciousness and wanted to share again: one pack miracle rice, rinsed and drained and dried, 1 pepperjack laughing cow lite mixed in, one 70 calorie pouch salmon--a dash of peppersauce, salt and pepper--stir til hot and creamy--soooo satisfying!
