How to cook spaghetti squash: cut squash in half lengthwise and lay face down on a baking tray with 1/2" water. Bake on 350F for 40 minutes (longer for softer noodles). Once cooked, use a large fork and scrape meat out for "noodles".

Ingredients Noodles Sauce Instructions
  1. Prepare spaghetti squash if you have not done so yet- see notes on how to cook.
  2. In a sauce pan over medium heat blend ingredients for sauce together until smooth and simmer until sauce thickens, then remove from heat (otherwise it will start to thin out again or become too thick). I use a hand blender to stir sauce- you can also whisk it by hand. Stir/blend continuously to prevent clumps.
  3. Brown ground hamburger in a skillet over medium heat then remove from heat and stir into sauce.
  4. Slice tomatoes in half and brown in a skillet over medium heat with a dash of olive oil for about 1 minute until golden, then remove from heat and serve with spaghetti squash and sauce.

If you don't have or want carrot noodles, you can sub for any other noodle or vegetable noodles- zucchini, sweet potato, or spaghetti squash.

Ingredients Sauce Instructions
  1. Puree all ingredients for the sauce together in food processor or high powered blender for 3-5 minutes until completely smooth.
  2. Place carrot noodles on a baking tray and cook in a convection toaster (or oven) on 450F for about 10-15 minutes until soft. Then set aside. *You can also cook noodles in a skillet on the stovetop, but I have found convection baking carrot noodles turns out perfect results every time and eliminates excess water. I get carrot noodles from Trader Joe's. You can also use sweet potato noodles or any other vegetable noodle.
  3. Once noodles are cooked, serve with alfredo sauce, top with fresh chopped basil (optional), and serve! Leftovers can be stored in the freezer and reheated later- if you are meal prepping, blend sauce and freeze separate, do not cook noodles until you are prepared to eat them.

Ingredients Soup Dumplings Instructions Soup
  1. Heat a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the chopped onions, minced garlic, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil into the soup pan and saute for few minutes until caramelized and golden brown. This will take approximately 5-10 minutes.
  2. Add the chopped carrots, water, and seasonings to the pan and cook (with a lid covering the pot) for 20-30 minutes or until carrots are soft.
  3. Add the chopped chicken into the pot and cook for 5 minutes.
Dumplings
  1. For the dumplings, combine all of the ingredients together in a medium size mixing bowl and combine until the dough is evenly mixed.
  2. Scoop about 1/4 cup of batter at a time into the soup pan and cook on low heat for an additional 10 minutes (with a lid covering the pot).
  3. You will know the soup is finished when it is thick and creamy and the dumplings are cooked through- test by cutting a dumpling in half to see that is it cooked through. Cooking time will vary depending on different stove brands.
