Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti Squash is great for low carb and low calorie diets. It is a type of squash that when cooked the insides pull apart with a similar structure and texture to spaghetti noodles. It tastes wonderful plain with just a dash of olive oil and pepper or as a pasta substitute like spaghetti!
