Skinny Baked Spaghetti

I love a good baked pasta dish and this cheesy baked spaghetti is no exception! It's lower in calories and fat than a traditional baked spaghetti but it is just as tasty. I love how it can be prepared ahead of time and then all you have to do is pop it in the oven 45 minutes before you are ready to eat. It makes the perfect weeknight meal that the whole family will enjoy!

Skinny Baked Spaghetti
Serves 8
Cal 345, Carbs 36.1, Fat 9.6g, Fiber 1.7g, Protein 23.5

12 oz spaghetti cooked to al dente
1 lb lean ground beef (I used 93/7)
1 tsp. dried italian seasoning
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 cups petite diced tomatoes
2 oz reduced fat cream cheese
1/2 cup light sour cream
1/8 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9x13-inch baking dish.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked to al dente.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat; brown meat and drain. Stir in the italian seasoning and diced tomatoes.

In a separate bowl mix together garlic powder, cream cheese, parmesan cheese, and sour cream. Stirring until smooth.

Place spaghetti into baking dish. Top with meat mixture and then cream cheese mixture. Top with shredded cheddar.

Bake for 30 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned and bubbly. Enjoy!
