Baked Pizza Spaghetti

Weight Watchers calls this recipe “Spaghetti Pizza” but I feel that choice of word order is deceptive because it in no way resembles a pizza in the typical sense. It is, however, very tasty and combines the flavors of pizza and spaghetti (and who doesn’t like those?). The original recipe calls for the addition of ¼ c of basil, but since I didn’t have any on hand when I made this, it’s omitted in my version. I also substituted reduced fat mozzarella and turkey pepperoni for the regular versions which lightened it up a bit more and tasted delicious (I love turkey pepperoni).

One of my co-workers also made this recipe after seeing mine and omitted the pepperoni altogether and also gave hers rave reviews. You could add any of your favorite pizza toppings and this would turn out well.

    • I’m currently in the process of going back through all my older recipes and calculating the NI, but it’s time consuming! I will try to get to this one soon, but if you want it sooner you can always run it through the recipe builder at myfitnesspal.com (which is what I use to determine the NI). Thanks!
