Skinny Spaghetti Ok, so I know we’re all trying to cut back & slim down for summer. I know you’ve read myAnti-Diet & you’re desperate for more recipes to help you on your way. You’re probably looking at this huge plate of mouthwatering meaty pasta and thinking about all those carbs & calories… Come on! The chilli is the only part of this recipe that really takes work. Fry your onions until soft and add your garlic. Keep stirring and moving it around the pan until it browns. Now, sprinkle your cayenne pepper & smoked paprika over the top. Pour in the wine (pour yourself a glass while you’re at it). Add your BBQ sauce & Siriacha. By the end you should be left with a rich, dark coloured chilli which will smell amazing. If you’re not happy with it, play around. Sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan (not cheddar andnot that powdered stuff you keep at the back of the cupboard.) The best ‘diet foods’ are the ones that make you feel like you’re not missing out at all.
