Spaghetti squash is a winter squash that, when baked, has delicate strands that resemble spaghetti. It has a mild flavor which makes it a great alternative to regular spaghetti. You can serve it with any type of tomato sauce, curry sauces or even pesto.
The advantage of a spaghetti squash over traditional spaghetti is that it is packed with nutrients, low in carbohydrates and high in fiber! You can have 2 cups of spaghetti squash to 1/3 cup of regular spaghetti for about the same amount of carbohydrates.
Spaghetti squash is oblong and yellow with thick flesh. The hardest part of making spaghetti squash is cutting it! Using a good large knife, you can cut it in half width-wise. If you want to cut it length-wise, cut off each end so that there is a flat surface to work with. You will then place one end down and cut with your knife from the top. Once your squash is cut, scoop out the seeds and then you are ready to bake it.
