Some Nutritional Facts:

Spaghetti squash is a summer squash that resembles the popular pasta when cooked, with the inner flesh coming out in strings that look like noodles. It’s a good alternative to pasta, particularly if you’re cutting back on refined grains. The squash is low-calorie, with 35 calories in a one-cup serving and less than a gram of fat. Spaghetti squash has a mild, slightly sweet taste, that manages to stand up even to strong meats, and complements a variety of flavors.

  1. This is a delish recipe and healthy. I brought Organic Spaghetti Squash – A La Carte already fully cooked, microwave 6 mins. Low in Carbs 7g compare to Cheese Ravioli 33g. It’s just like eating PASTA. I had “my” sauce in the freezer YUM and Uncle Dick being Italian loves Ravioli’s, also liked the Spaghetti Squash. I enjoy your blog – great variety of recipes. I like easy . 🙂 xo
