This Low-Calorie, Low-Carb "Pasta" Takes Just 15 Minutes to Make

This cheesy, garlicky "pasta" from healthy chef Hungry Girl is the best of both worlds — it's just as fast to make as any simple pasta dish and doesn't come overloaded with carbs. And since it's a similarly low-calorie and low-carb pasta alternative as spaghetti squash (one whole bag of broccoli slaw is only 100 calories and five grams of carbs) without all the prep, it's perfect for any gluten-free girl on the go.

Look for broccoli slaw in the bagged salad section of your grocery store.

This Low-Calorie, Low-Carb "Pasta" Takes Just 15 Minutes to Make

Ingredients

  1. 340 grams shredded broccoli (slaw)
    240 mL low-fat creamy tomato soup or canned crushed tomatoes

    3 tablespoons reduced-fat parmesan-style grated topping, divided

Directions

  1. Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat on the stove.
