    Spaghetti Squash with Marinara Sauce and Parmesan: Spaghetti squash gives you the look and feel of starchy pasta for less than a quarter of the calories and carbs.

    Roasted Eggplant Parmesan: Slice an eggplant and place on a baking sheet. Then spray tops with olive oil, lightly sprinkle on Kosher salt, and roast in oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Then, top each roasted eggplant slice with marinara sauce, shredded part-skim cheese (tonight I used Sargento 4-cheese Italian), some grated parmesan cheese, oregano, and crushed red pepper. Pop back in oven for about 5-10 minutes until the cheese is hot and bubbly. Only 70 calories per slice!
