I love spaghetti squash. It's easy to prepare, filling, and a great low carbohydrate substitute for your favorite pasta dishes. Not to mention, it does not give you that after-pasta-bloat feeling! I cook this often and like to add pesto and chicken or fresh tomato sauce, basil, and Italian sausage.
First, cut stem off and slice lengthwise.
Next, scrape out seeds with a fork.
Then, place face down on a sheet pan.
Bake for 45 minutes on 400 degrees.
When you take a fork and scrape out the middle, it will create strands that look like spaghetti.
