Instead of picking up pasta noodles to pair with your meat sauce on spaghetti night, grab a spaghetti squash instead. It is a high-quality source of carbohydrate that is full of fibre and a very nutritious alternative to traditional pasta. It also freezes nicely – we recommend separating it and freezing it in individual portions to grab when you need a quick source of whole food carbohydrate!
Water 1 cup | 250 mL
Spaghetti squash 1 each | 1 each
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Pour the water into a large glass casserole dish.
Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and lay each squash half with the inside facing down in the casserole dish.
Place the casserole dish in the oven and bake for 45-55 minutes, until a fork can easily pierce through the squash.
