Spaghetti Squash is one of the most intriguing winter produce I've come across over the last few years. You cook like pumpkin, butternut squash, and all other gourds, however when you take it out of the oven, the Spaghetti Squash shreds up to look like spaghetti (hence the name). You may think it is a vegetable, but in actuality it is a fruit. Spaghetti Squash can replace regular pasta. This is great for people who are gluten-free, on a diet, or trying to get their kids to eat better foods. Spaghetti squash only contains 42 calories for 1 cup, while regular pasta contains about 200 calories. I hope you enjoy this Vegan, Gluten-Free, Healthy recipe for How To Cook Spaghetti Squash.
