Do You Love Spaghetti (or Any Pasta)? If So, You Have To Try This!

This Sparked Me!

If you're like me and you love spaghetti (ANY pasta), and want to enjoy it without sacrificing your healthy eating, whenever possible use spaghetti squash, instead of pasta. If you have never tried it, give it a try! If time allows, I will also make my own sauce to eliminate all the added sugar and/or salt in jarred sauces. Or even just toss the strands of spaghetti squash with a little olive oil then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. emoticon

Spaghetti squash can be easily cooked in a microwave and usually has a sticker on it with instructions. I cut mine in half, place cut side down in a glass casserole dish with a little water, cover with the lid and microwave for about 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool, then use a fork to remove strands.

    my ex husband was vegetarian and we used to do this all the time- it has pretty good flavor. The hardest thing to get used to is the texture.
