Yummy Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash is by far the funnest of the winter squash, boasting tender shreds of flesh that resembles spaghetti. You can serve “spaghetti” with marinara or a garlic sauce as you would real pasta or dress it up with fresh ingredients and serve it in the winter squash’s shell. We love this yummy stuffed spaghetti squash as a healthy vegan dinner.
