A Weight Watchers Recipe Win

Last week, I had  a girls night in with Liz which involved some delicious enchilladas, some wine and a lot of girl talk.

I had originally suggested a weight watchers recipe that I saw on the weight watchers website but she wasn’t feeling pasta so we substituted and the enchilladas were a huge hit!

However, I went back to the pasta dish tonight – because easy dishes on nights when it’s just little man and I are key and this one was a big fat win. Not so much for Ethan but definitely for me. I couldn’t find the recipe so I improvised.

weight watchers spaghetti

Meatless Meat Sauce and Whole Wheat Spaghetti


1/2 box whole wheat pasta (I used spaghetti)
1 jar your favorite sauce (I used organic vodka sauce)
1/2 onion
2 cloves garlic minced (or 1 T garlic paste)
1 package tempeh – grated
1 T. Olive Oil


Heat pan with olive oil, garlic and onion for 3-4 minutes. Add tempeh. Stir until coated. Add sauce. Bring to simmer while stirring frequently.

Cook pasta according to directions.

Mix and top with cheese.


1 serving (~1 c. pasta & 1/2 c. sauce) = 6-8 Points Plus
