Skinny Mediterranean “Pasta”


I spotted this colorful recipe on Peace Love Shea’s blog, and it just looked so yummy! It definitely delivered, with serious flavor. It’s a great Spring dish, I highly recommend throwing on your ruffled apron and getting your bake on.


To speed up your time in the kitchen, I recommend piercing the spaghetti squash and microwaving it for 6 minutes, flipping it over and microwaving another 6 minutes, until tender. (You may want to check on the squash in intervals, since some microwaves are more powerful than others.)

This “pasta” can be served hot or cold, making it the perfect party dish! I paired it along with a balsamic baked portobello mushroom and steamed kale.

Portobello Fajita Salad with Pineapple Mango Salsa


I’ve been portobello crazy lately. It’s such a great lunch or dinner (or even breakfast) staple, that compliments any flavor or theme.

I purchased Fresh Pineapple Mango Salsa on a recent trip to Whole Foods, and thought it would be the perfect pairing on top of a portobello cap. The colorful dish is a great start to Spring with a major burst of flavor.

  • 1/2 Orange Bell Pepper, Chopped

  • Fresh Ground Pepper
  • 2 C Organic Arugula
  • 1 Roma Tomato, Chopped

Preheat oven 425 F degrees. Wash and clean portobello cap, and place on baking sheet. Scoop onion, bell pepper and fresh pineapple mango salsa on top. Sprinkle with garlic powder and fresh ground pepper, and drizzle olive oil and balsamic. Bake 10-15 minutes, or until fully cooked. Place arugula in a bowl, and add remaining ingredients. Top with fresh pineapple mango salsa and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
