Skinny Roasted Parmesan Spaghetti Squash

SKINNY ROASTED PARMESAN SPAGHETTI SQUASH

Spaghetti squash is a winter vegetable and it really does separate into spaghetti-like strands after it’s cooked. As well, it’s naturally slightly sweet and buttery tasting without adding anything.

Spaghetti squash is a low-carb alternative to actual spaghetti. It’s very versatile because it takes on whatever seasoning you add to it just like pasta or rice. Therefore, if you’re wanting to eat healthier spaghetti squash is a great way to do it.

Furthermore, if I haven’t talked you into trying spaghetti squash already, maybe this last point will do it. Spaghetti squash is one of the most simple foods you can make. Simply slice the squash in half, season it, and pop it in the oven to cook. It’s tasty with simply salt, pepper, butter, and garlic. As well, you can fill it with your favorite cheese. You can also stuff it with taco filling, fajitas, etc.
