If you've never cooked with spaghetti squash, I highly recommend you give it a try. Once it's roasted in the oven, the flesh comes off in strands that resemble spaghetti. Treat it as you would pasta and toss with a simple vegetable saute and you've got a carb-free, vegetarian-friendly meal. This recipe is highly versatile, so sub in whatever veggies you have on hand; mushrooms, peppers, even a green like kale would be delicious. Check it out now.
