Spaghetti Squash

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I know the internet is full of spaghetti squash recipes. I recently discovered it and I found it amazing! You may have it if you are following a gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian or paleo diet,  or just for the fun of it! I rather eat a vegetable, which gives me fiber, energy carbs and vitamins, than just plain energy carbs from pasta. It is very easy to make and it comes out so delicious! It absorbs what ever condiment it may come to your mind.

Here is how I prepare it, scroll dow to find 2 ways to serve it, one with my Pesto Paste and another with ricotta and tomato sauce. Both of them delicious! Give it a try!

For spaghetti squash with tomato sauce and ricotta, place the “noodles” in a oven safe container, spread ricotta cheese on top and add your favorite tomato spaghetti sauce over. Bake just to heat.
