This lightened-up version of the Italian classic substitutes spaghetti squash for pasta but still packs all the flavor and texture of the traditional.

Cook's Notes

Broiling meat with a little olive oil to make it crisp instead of frying it in lots of butter creates a healthful version of veal Milanese. Spaghetti squash, rich in fiber, stands in for pasta to complete the meal. The arrival of tender pea shoots signals the beginning of spring. We paired them with crunchy sunflower sprouts for a refreshing twist on this classic dish.

    I did the veal and it was so easy and delicious. I served it over spaghetti with tomato sauce. I will definitely do this again!

    For some reason the picture drew me to this dish and i went for the recipe, then i saw it, two words--"spaghetti squash" and I was hooked. In my book any recipe that has this lucious squash in it is a hit. Wonder if I have any Italian blood in me?
