I love pasta, and make it frequently as it's a favorite in my household. The best part about my pasta however is my homemade sauce (and all the ooey gooey cheese!). I swap out the pasta with roasted eggplant or shirataki tofu noodles and have a very indulgent dinner for about 300 calories!
Slice a small to med eggplant and place in a gallon size ziplock bag with 1 tbsp healthy oil of your choice (no need to salt and drain first). Roast on a baking sheet 25 mins @ 425, turning once. Top with homemade meat sauce, fresh shredded parmesan, mozzarella, whatever your favs are.
