Spaghetti squash is my new favourite vegetable. It’s amazing. We cooked it for the first time last week and it was a delicious success! Spaghetti squash has lots of great things going for it. You can bake it, boil it, steam it or even microwave it, it contains lots of great nutrients and it’s very low in calories. Oh and most importantly it’s naturally gluten free.
When it’s raw it’s hard like any other squash but once you cook it the flesh comes out just like spaghetti! I had heard spaghetti squash was a great substitute for pasta but I didn’t truly believe it until I saw it for myself. Amazing!
There are lots of great ways to cook and eat spaghetti squash but I really like it baked and served with home-made tomato sauce and fresh parmesan. A fantastic gluten free meal and really simple to make!
