All I can say is yum! And my waistline is pleased as well! Spaghetti squash is fiber-rich and far less calories than regular pasta. That is approximately 42-calories per cup versus the 221-calories in a cup of regular pasta. And you can top it with whatever you would regular pasta. Plus it reheats well. I am having this dish for lunch this week. Delish!
The spaghetti squash takes about 1.25 hrs to cook (including preparation time). But it is WELL worth it. When reheating, just heat the already cooked squash first, then add the avocado cream sauce. Avocados don’t do well microwaved.
This recipe is paleo, clean, and vegan friendly. AND it tastes great! Can’t resist now can you? I found this recipe on http://www.sweetlyvegan.com. I will just share the link with you because I don’t see any sense in reinventing the wheel!
