Spaghetti Squash

22 Jan

I love Italian food.  I’m not sold on whole-wheat pasta though.  In an effort to stay with my WW points, I made spaghetti squash the other night.  I’ve only made it a couple of times, and kinda made it up as I went.  If anybody has “real” instructions on how to cook a spaghetti squash, please let me know!

Spaghetti Squash, finished

You may be thinking to yourself, what the heck is a spaghetti squash, here it is!

Whole Spaghetti Squash

I cut it in half, lengthways, then microwaved each side until I could shred them, about 10-14 minutes each. Then, with a fork scrape the inside of the squash.  The flesh will come off in little spaghetti like strands.

Shredding it

Top with sauce and cheese if you wish.  Enjoy!

About 1 cup of spaghetti squash is 1 WW point!
