I tried this new recipe today. It is very good. Our Hy-Vee started stocking these vegetable items (I have requested). This is a Hungry Girl recipe I saw on FB.
Veggie Spirals Alfredo
1/2 of recipe (about 1 cup): 175 calories, 6g total fat (3g sat fat), 308mg sodium, 26.5g carbs, 2g fiber, 1g sugars, 4.5g protein
One 12-oz. bag Green Giant Butternut Squash Veggie Spirals
2 1/2 tbsp. light/reduced fat cream cheese
2 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread
2 tsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. chopped garlic
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper
Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat.
Add veggie spirals and 1/4 cup water to the skillet. Cover and cook for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Reduce heat to medium low. Uncover skillet, and add all remaining ingredients.
Cook and stir until cheeses have melted and entire mixture is hot and uniform, about 2 minutes.
MAKES 2 SERVINGS
I added a leftover baked chicken breast and chopped brussels sprouts. It was very yummy! You can add whatever seasoning you like to the recipe to make it your own.
