Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

(Cooking Time: 15 minutes \ Preparation Time: 10 minutes\ Servings: 4)

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.
