Spaghetti squash is surprisingly yummy
I can't believe that I don't eat spaghetti squash more often.
Did you know the paler spaghetti squash has something along the lines of 40 calories per half cup?! Amazing!
Preheat your oven to 350.
Slice spaghetti squash length-wise. Place face down in cast iron skillet or pan. I also put 1/2 inches of water in the pan with the squash, to keep it very moist.
Cook 30 minutes. This may or may not be enough (depending on how efficient your oven is.) So flip the squash and see if the meat is soft. If it is -- this is the fun part!
Using a fork, slide it inside the squash to remove the meat. It'll come out in strands.. just like spaghetti!
Top with Alfredo sauce (made from Chreese + mylk).
Top with salt and pepper.
I bet this would even be good with sugar on top as dessert!
You can't go wrong. Eat it. Enjoy!
