Spaghetti Squash: Healthy, Easy, Fun!

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:

  1. Cut the squash in half.  This is the hardest part.  Use a good knife and a little force.
  2. Scoop out the seeds and toss.
  3. 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.)
  4. 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.
