Call me crazy, but I had never had spaghetti squash until now. I’m in love now.

It’s a delicious way to enjoy your favorite carbs dinner with a vegetable as the noodles! What?!? And they taste like pasta in the great form of angel hair pasta. Mmm!

Baking it couldn’t be easier, too. If you haven’t tried spaghetti squash, you should definitely give it a go!

  1. How funny – I just baked spaghetti squash for the first time yesterday! It’s on the menu for dinner tonight, and I’m even more excited to try it after hearing you enjoyed it.

    P.S. Love the picture you tweeted of your son and dog all bundled up!

  2. I’ve been cooking spaghetti squash for-just-about ever . . . . I LOVE IT . . . . I do have a question – the bowl contains cooked spaghetti squash, yes, but the squash in the picture is an acorn squash. (!!??)

    1. Haha, yes that is an acorn squash and a pumpkin in the background. Since I used the spaghetti squash for the meal, I just wanted to have something in the background that was squash-like. ;D

      1. I had to play “look for the pumpkin”. It’s a little one! That was fun!!! By the way, I love your blog, I love to cook and if I had a digital camera and a computer that wasn’t a dinosaur I think I would try my hand at food blogging. I learn so much every day and have time in my life now for experimenting.

        1. Thank you Susan! 😀 If you ever get a new camera and computer, you should definitely give it a go and let me know you’re in the blogosphere! 😀

  3. I really want to make some spaghetti squash! I think I’m going to do that soon! It sounds super healthy and really really yummy!! 😀
