Carb Free Spaghetti ...yum!

   This past weekend DFH and I finally made Spaghetti Squash, and it was fabulous I could not get enough.  The best part about it is, it honestly tastes like spaghetti and it is guilt free.  It is also super easy to make. 

  Spaghetti Squash is available year round, we were not able to find it in our local supermarket, but we did find it at Whole Foods.

   We bought a 3.5 lb. Spaghetti Squash which was perfect for two people.  There were directions right on our squash with how to prepare it.  You can either microwave the squash or bake it, which is what we did.

The Squash was too hard to cut in half so we microwaved it for about 3 minutes before we baked it. ( Make sure you poke holes in the squash with a fork before you microwave it, to prevent an explosion.

Place the halves of Squash open side down, in a pan, with a small amount of water in the bottom.

Cook for about 45 minutes  at 375 degrees, the inside should be tender.

Take out the seeds and begin to scrape out the insides.

You'll see the strands look like spaghetti noodles

  Now just add your favorite sauce and enjoy!
 We chose to add turkey sausage, diced tomatoes, and a lemon butter sauce, which was delicious.  Marinara Sauce would work well too.

The finished product:: It tasted better then it looks.
