Spaghetti Squash

Why did I not know about this wonderful food earlier?!?! Spaghetti squash can be used just as it spaghetti pasta. Pierce holes throughout the sides of the squash before cooking so it doesn't explode. Cook in oven at 375 degrees for 1 hour or boil for about a half hour. You also could microwave it for 10-12 minutes. (I tend to avoid the microwave, but I'll go into that more later). You'll know it's done when you can poke a fork it in and it feels soft. Let it cool for about 5 minutes before cutting open though because it will be crazy hot! Cut it in half and scoop out the seeds and it'll look like this.
Using a fork, scrap out your "noodles". Use in place of any pasta.
One cup is just 42 calories whereas one cup of whole wheat pasta is 140 calories!!!
So yummy :)
