Food of the week

Food of the week

If like me you love your stir fry noodles or spaghetti, as do the kids, and make a bolognese weekly, I have a new food to share. I found Butternut squash noodles from M&S. At £1 a pack and only 35 calories a portion they are brilliantl They take the place of spaghetti in my bowl which along with the home made less fat bolognese sauce on the recipe page gives a delicious meal without the calories from the big carbs.

  • Had these last week. They are very nice.

  • Brillant thank you for that going to try themxx

  • Going to have to try these too. Love spaghetti bolognese and use quorn mince to avoid any extra fat - other than that in the low fat grated cheese I add!

    Thanks Suzymac

  • If you don't want to spend the money and haven't got a spiraliser to make your own, try shredding in a food processor or grating on the biggest grater. I have long added carrot and courgette to half a portion of noodles or spaghetti. Not as low as replacing all the pasta, but a nice compromise both for taste and saving the kcals. I tend to chop my butternut squash into chips or chunks and microwave then fry in spray or very little oil. It often replaces potato when I am short on kcals for the next meal.

  • These are lovely, sainsburys do them too if you don't have an M&S nearby ☀️

  • Tesco do them too :)

  • Amazing - thanks for sharing!

  • I've got some in the fridge! Gonna try them tonight! Haven't looked how to cook them yet tho! 😊
