SPAGETTI SQUASH
Very Good 4.6/5
(5 ratings)

Spagetti Squash can be found at your farmer's market from fall into late winter. Easy to prepare, and fun to eat. A small spagetti squash 1.5 to 2 pounds is fine for full dinner serving for one person, a bit bigger 3 pounds or more to serve 2 people.

I serve cooked, pulled Spagetti Squash with my favorite Hearty Vegetarian Tomato Sauce that I often make to go with pasta. On Spagetti Squash you save big on those precious calories when dieting.
