Ok all you low carb eaters, this one is for you! Vegetable Garden Spaghetti!!

I’ve been eating a lot of salad lately, trying to get in those healthy veggies and lose my muffin top but was in the mood from some hot and comforting. Spaghetti squash to the rescue!!

 

I call this Vegetable Garden Spaghetti because this dish is 100% vegetables and all of the ingredients can come right from the garden.

The spaghetti sauce is loaded with fresh veggies like peppers, spinach, onions, carrots, zucchini…really you can add whatever veggies you like. For the pasta, I’m using none other but spaghetti squash. If you have never had spaghetti squash then you are gonna love it, this is coming from someone who is not a real big fan off squash.

Spaghetti squash can be eaten plain, drizzled with olive oil and spices, tossed with sauces or even sweetened for a dessert.

It’s a a good feeling when you can get full off of a hot meal and know that it was completely healthy.

Notes

*note* you can use any kind of veggies you want. I just added what I had in my refrigerator. You can also cook spaghetti squash in the microwave if you are in a rush. Cook time will depend on how large your squash is. I sometimes like to add smoked turkey dinner sausage & parmesan cheese to this. Sooo good and filling! Let your imagination be the limit and if you come up with a really tasty spaghetti squash dish LET ME KNOW!!! :
