Recipes to Try: Spaghetti Squash

We promised you 12 new ideas for fun recipes this year. Last month we tried Chicken and waffles. This month we want to try something a little healthier. Spaghetti Squash.

Spaghetti squash is a vegetable, sort of like a gourd or pumpkin, that when cooked properly can create the most perfect vegetable spaghetti. It creates such a perfect noodle-like strand that many don’t even realize it isn’t real spaghetti. This lighter fare option is not only delicious, it can also be used in virtually any recipe that calls for noodles. It is also very simple to make.
