I love spaghetti but don't want to eat the pasta anymore so I brainstormed and realized that green beans might be a good substitute for pasta. I tried it out and it worked great. I now fix this at home and take it to parties, too. I've gotten many compliments on it. It was even included in a low carb recipe book a few years back (with my name on it) that a lady was compiling. So cool!!

How to Make Green Bean Spaghetti

Step-by-Step

  1. This really is a one dish meal -- I adjust the amount of green beans and meat (increase or decrease) to fit the situation and the number of people I'm feeding.
  2. I really do just dump the frozen green beans into the pan and cook until they are thawed, cover with sauce, and simmer til tender. Sometimes I add other frozen vegetables, too -- such as broccoli or okra
  3. I also like to add some more garlic powder and Italian spices for the last 5 minutes of cooking time to freshen up the flavors. You can also add a little more salt and pepper if you like at that time. Just taste it and see.
