Spaghetti squash is one of those foods that a lot of us have heard about or seen at the grocery store or farmer’s market…but perhaps been a bit too intimidated or weirded out to try.
I’ve got good news for you!
Spaghetti squash is very easy to cook AND fun to play with 🙂 I’m always up for anything that makes cooking more fun, and this ingredient definitely does!
You can upgrade your pasta by swapping it out for spaghetti squash.
As its name implies, the inside of the squash can be scraped out to form spaghetti-like strands, so you can serve it just like you would spaghetti. Top it with your favorite marinara or pesto sauce or sauté it with garlic, onions, spinach and some herbs. It’s tender but has a slight “crunch” to it.
It’s rich in fiber as well as beta-carotene, which is good for our vision, immune system, and healthy skin.
I’ll be sharing a recipe for a Tuscan spaghetti squash boat later this week, but in the meantime, here’s how you make spaghetti squash!
