Seriously…baked pasta, a Dukan Diet recipe? On a diet? If you can find the Shirataki noodles, you can have pasta. And look, I would. I just took this out of the oven and I’m not sure I’m going to wait for Tom to get home. I love tomatoes and all that lycopene is just screaming healthy. Along with some lean protein and a little bit of cheese…it’s close enough to the real thing for me.
1 medium onion, chopped
3 turkey sausages, removed from casing or 1/2 pound ground sirloin
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1 15 oz can whole tomatoes
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 14 oz can basil-and-oregano diced tomatoes, drained
2 T tomato paste
1 t Splenda
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
1/2 t dried parsley or 1 T fresh, chopped
2 packages Shirataki angel hair (link below to amazon.com if you can’t find them locally!)
1/2 cup part-skim or fat free mozzarella cheese , shredded
2 T grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper and red pepper flakes
Heat oven to 375°. Coat a casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Add onion and sausage to a skillet and cook 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook another minute. Add the tomato paste and work it in well. Stir in whole tomatoes and their juice, breaking tomatoes apart with a wooden spoon. Stir in tomato sauce, Splenda, salt and pepper. Simmer for 20 minutes.
Remove pan from heat. Stir in diced tomatoes and basil and parsley.
Drain noodles well. Boil them for five minutes, drain well and transfer to a large bowl. Add half the sauce to bowl with noodles. Stir to coat. Pour noodle mixture into prepared dish. Top with remaining sauce and then sprinkle with the cheeses.
Bake at 375° for 20 to 25 minutes, until bubbly and lightly browned. Cool 10 minutes.
