Spaghetti Squash

Nicole was over and asked about one of my favorite little squashes the...

Spaghetti Squash

I love this little gem, Spaghetti squash contains many nutrients, including folic acid, potassium, vitamin A, and beta carotene. It is low in calories, averaging 42 calories per 1-cup...and what's more...
it's tasty! It has a little bite to it and a soft sweetness. I like it way more than regular pasta. So I scoured the net a found a simple video to help you cook one for your family.

If you don't want to hit the oven, you can actually cook this baby in the microwave. Stab it a few times with a knife and cook on high heat for about 4-5 min per pound.

(yes you could still cut in half and clean it out first, but it takes longer to cook in the microwave this way)

This is great with ANY of your favorite sauces or for a tradiotnal approach make some Meatballs and Sweet Pepper Sauce. Yum!
