This traditional recipe is low carb if you substitute regular spaghetti for Mung Bean Pasta. If you have a hard time finding the pasta use farro pasta instead of regular white pasta. This will still increase the carb count so read your lables.
Although it also seems high in calories it does fall within the recommended caloric intake for the average person. According to recommended guidelines the average woman’s daily caloric intake is 2000 calories and for men is 2500. Therefore each meal should be 650-700 and 800-850 calories respectively. If you wish to cut calories consider using less or low fat cheese as this is where the majority of the calories come from.
If you want a vegetarian option try slices of eggplant.
