Weight Watchers Zero Points Butternut Squash Pasta

Zero Points Butternut Squash Pasta

Serves Two

4 cups butternut squash noodle spirals

1/2 cup white onion, diced

1 garlic clove, minced

16 ounces ground chicken breast, 98% fat free

1 1/2 cups tomato sauce

2 cups arugula

2 TBSP fat-free grated parmesan cheese

Olive-oil cooking spray

For the butternut spirals, you can create your own noodles but for this recipe I just purchased the butternut spirals as it saves a lot of time. Spray a large pan with olive oil cooking spray and heat to medium.  Add the butternut squash noodles and cook for about 3-4 minutes until tender.  Remove from pan.

Dice onion and mince garlic. In the same pan you used to cook the squash noodles, saute the onion and the garlic for 3-4 minutes until tender.  Add the ground chicken breast and cook it for about 5-7 minutes until it is no longer pink and cooked through.  Add the tomato sauce and heat through.  Add the noodles back to the pan and add the arugula. Toss all of the ingredients together for 1-2 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Divide the squash pasta among two bowls.  Sprinkle one TBSP of grated parmesan onto each pasta bowl.  Wow!  This is a scrumptious zero points meal!  It really tastes like a huge bowl of regular pasta.
