This is one of those gourmet sounding (and tasting) dishes that is actually super easy to throw together. The only thing that you will have to keep in mind is the roasting time (1 hour 15 minutes).
I have heard of people using spaghetti squash to replace actual spaghetti noodles in dishes and always thought that it would be sacrilegious (c’mon…veggies for pasta?), but I was very pleasantly surprised!
It made for a wonderful pasta alternative, not to mention a healthier and more filling one.
Bonus—it’s kid-friendly too.
Why I love squash
It’s nutritious (it actually has 120 mg of Omega 3 fatty acids per cup!), extremely versatile, very reasonable in price, SO tasty, and easy to cook with. Besides being a source of Omega 3, it also contains calcium, magnesium, potassium and Vitamin C.
