Spaghetti in a Squash

Posted on May 29, 2019 to Public

I LOVE spaghetti... Unfortunately, that was one of the foods that were off the list when it came down to eating gluten free. A friend suggested substituting spaghetti squash in place of the noodles. Talk about a game changer! I immediately fell in love with this romantic, yet newly healthy, meal; and so did my hubby! It's easy to prepare, requiring little effort...except the dishes....I hate doing dishes.
