I have a new love… spaghetti squash. This nutrient-rich vegetable can replace pasta in any of your favorite recipes. It adds a little color, a slight crunch, and will leave you feeling light and energized.
Here’s a quick and easy way to cook it in the microwave:
- Cut the squash in half. This is the hardest part. Use a good knife and a little force.
- Scoop out the seeds and toss.
- Place the squash halves cut-side down on a plate and microwave, for about 6-7 minutes per half. (So if you do both halves together, it willtake about 12 minutes.)
- Allow it to cool, and then use a fork or spoon to tease out the spaghetti-like strands.
Top with your favorite pasta sauce and enjoy! I really loved this recipe from AllRecipes.com.
