Hands down, spaghetti squash is my favorite substitute for pasta. It has a subtle taste, pairs well with sauces and dishes, it yields huge portions, and is incredibly inexpensive.
The hardest part is learning to cook this for the first time. It is easier than you think
Heat the oven to 400 and piece the spaghetti squash all over with a knife. Place it on a baking sheet in the oven and roast for 30 minutes, then flip it and roast it another 30 minutes. Wrap the squash in foil and store in the fridge. When you are ready to prepare your bowl or meals, cut them in ½ and scoop out the middle. Then scrape the flesh with a fork to create the noodles.
In this picture, I roasted the squash, put it in a pan with cooking spray and garlic powder, I added ¼ cup Rao’s marinara and topped it with Parmesan cheese. Once the squash was cooked, this dish took 5 minutes to prep.
