How to Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Why Spaghetti Squash?

Cooking a spaghetti squash is a simple skill that is necessary for any healthy kitchen. Spaghetti squash is remarkably versatile. Using this squash as a pasta replacement opens up a whole realm of possibilities for grain-free options that are both tasty and filling. Whether you are transitioning in to more paleo based cooking, or you just want to incorporate less processed carbohydrates into your diet, this squash is a necessity. This vegetable (actually, it’s technically a fruit), is nutrient dense and loaded with beta-carotene which is a precursor to vitamin A. It also has a ton of fiber, making it both filling and a gut-loving food.

Roast, and enjoy!
