Ingredients

Two 10-oz. baking potatoes

2 sticks light string cheese

1/3 cup low-fat marinara sauce

Seasonings: garlic powder, Italian seasoning (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Pierce potatoes several times with a fork. On a microwave-safe plate, microwave potatoes for 3 1/2 minutes.

Flip potatoes, and microwave for 3 1/2 more minutes, or until soft.

Once cool enough to handle, cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to gently scoop out the pulp, leaving about 1/4 inch inside the skin. Discard the potato pulp (or reserve for another use).

Place potato skins on the baking sheet. Bake until crispy, 12 - 15 minutes. Remove sheet, but leave oven on.

Meanwhile, break string cheese into thirds and place in a blender or food processor -- blend at high speed until shredded. (Or pull into shreds and roughly chop.)

Evenly distribute sauce among potato skins. Sprinkle with 1/4 tsp. garlic powder and, if you like, some Italian seasoning.

Sprinkle with shredded string cheese. Bake until cheese has melted, about 5 minutes. Mmmm!
