Spaghetti…Squash? Easy, Healthy, Deelish!

Curiouser and curiouser!  Crack this shiny yellow veggie open and find strands of squash masquerading as spaghetti!  All while offering less calories/carbs and more nutrients!  How am I just now cooking with this delightfully peculiar vegetable?

The best part of spaghetti squash is that it offers an exceptionally easy dinner option (I ignored the “bake in the oven for an hour” bit and simply microwaved it), without the guilt.

Here is a basic recipe to work off of.  I microwaved the squash for about 15 minutes, cut it open, scooped out the strands (tossed out the seeds), and added my sauce mix to it.

More specifically:  While the squash is cooking (in the microwave or oven..however you prefer), saute the garlic and onion in a large saucpan, then add a red sauce, Italian seasoning, splash of red wine, and finally some shredded mozarella cheese.  Once the squash is cooked, spoon out the good stuff and toss it into the saucepan to coat it in flavor!
