If you are trying to get in shape, pasta may not be the way to go. Natural unprocessed carbs are far more beneficial for you as fuel for the human machine. Spaghetti squash is a great substitute for pasta and regular spaghetti.
To prepare a spaghetti squash, simply cut it in half and scrape out the guts. I take the seeds out of the guts and eat them as well.
Then you put the pieces face down in your baking sheet.
Then I bake it at 400 degrees ( I just bake everything at 400), for 1 hour and 10 min or until it is soft. Once it is cooked, I take it out and let it cool for a few minutes. Then take a fork and scrape out your healthy spaghetti.
You can make your own healthy sauce or use it however you want.
Give it a try if you haven't. There are many different ways to cook it. This is just how I do it. Simple and effective. Hope this helps. Keep exploring new ways to include healthy and fit into your life.
