Spaghetti Squash Recipes


Spaghetti squash is a wonderful food for healthy people to eat. Spaghetti squash is easy to grow, can be cheap in stores, is tasty, and has few calories or carbs!

First off, what is spaghetti squash? It is simply a squash that has spaghetti like strands inside it. This makes it great for dishes where you want a spaghetti texture to the meal. They come in oblongs, like a watermelon, but they are usually yellow to orange in color and about 9" long.

Spaghetti squash are very easy to cook. Just drop the entire oval into a pot of boiling water and cook it for about 25 minutes. To bake it, make a few holes in the skin first so it doesn't explode. Then cook it at 375F for an hour.

If you're the microwaving type, you need to cut the squash in half first. This helps prevent the squash-explodes-inside-your-microwave problem. Scoop out the seeds, then zap it for 10 minutes on high.

No matter which technique you use, the squash is done when the skin is tender. Jab a fork in it to find out if it seems ready. Let it cool for about 10 minutes, then use a fork to pull out the spaghetti like strands inside.

Spaghetti squash can be perfect as a side dish - especially if you put alfredo sauce over it!

Only 4g carbs for a full 1/2 cup serving! They are chock full of vitamins too!
