Spaghetti Squash Marinara

Ruby Tuesday’s takes pasta marinara to a whole new level, trading traditional spaghetti for a combo of spaghetti squash and zucchini tossed in a zesty red pepper marinara. The result: a plateful of satisfying vegetables that’s lower in calories and carbs than your average pasta plate but just as big on flavor. Made from purely vegetables, it is lacking a bit in the protein department. A side of Sauteed Baby Portabella Mushrooms quickly solves that problem. They serve up a surprising 6 grams of protein for only 140 additional calories. Just beware: like most pasta dishes this one is a bit of a sodium bomb. You can cut down by asking for your sauce on the side.
