Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti Squash is rich in vitamins and nutritional value which means you’re getting tons of vitamin C, vitamin B6, betacarotene, and fiber. Also high in fiber and low in carbs: it won’t mess with your blood sugar the same way high-carb foods. In the recipe, I make a delicious low-carb magical food with spaghetti squash that is an alternative to replace pasta, depending on your dietary needs.

Your ingredient list does not include cheese yet the directions states to “divide half of the cheese”. Please send correction to [email protected]. One other thing I’ve questioned is the small round pieces of __?__ (something) pictured in the foreground of the stuffed spaghetti squash. Is there more than one ingredient missing in your ingredient list? You need a proof reader or a new editor. Thank you.
