Not your momma’s spaghetti dinner..

So many people ask me how to make spaghetti squash.. and when I tell them.. they just laugh..  Why??   Theres nothing to it.

Heres the “secret” to your veggie Sunday  Spaghetti Dinner

First .. buy a nice size spaghetti squash (also known as winter squash).. one small squash can make two generous bowls of “spaghetti”..

Next up cook it.. I boil mine .. just submerge The entire squash..as is..in  arolling boiling pot of water..   for about 20 minutes.. fully submerged.  Many microwave..(12 minutes on high)  I do not, if you do, you need to make four to six knife holes ( just a prick of the knife)  in the squash.. but do NOT make holes when boiling.

After cooked (boiled or microwave)  let cool to touch or use a cloth to hold while cutting  in half length wise. .. once cut open,  take out seeds with a fork or spoon and discard ( or roast if you like that?)

Next up .. after you take out seeds.. using a fork scrape each side of squash… it will just come out in strands.. like spaghetti…. put in a bowl.. and serve as you would ANY pasta..

I like to just add  a little olive oil, sea salt, pepper and tomato..   DELISH.. and SO SO SO easy..

One cup of spaghetti squash has about 45 calories (just cooked squash) and about 10 grams of carbs ( if you are counting?).. its loaded with Vitamins C and B6..  and did I mention.. it really does taste like spaghetti ??

Try it.. I bet you’ll  LOVE it..

Create a great day
