Pasta is a carbohydrate’s best friend. Sure I love the stuff, just like I love hot buttered bread. But the problem is so does my waistline, my butt and my thighs. They want to hold on to that pasta in the form of fat, cellulite and lots of jiggle. So, I have been trying to slowly but surely weed out all of those high in carbohydrate’s dishes that I love but replace them with low carbohydrate, HEALTHIER versions. So, I present the spaghetti squash! Do you realize that 1 cup of pasta has 40 grams of carbohydrate’s? Now compare that to the spaghetti squash, 1 cup has 8 grams of carbohydrates and only 42 calories. What?! What?! After hearing those statistics how can you say “no”, right? Well, you might give the argument that is doesn’t taste as good. I beg to differ. You might complain that is it a pain to make? Pffffft. This is where I come in. I am going to show you JUST how easy it is to make a spaghetti squash pasta replacement.

I can’t wait to try some of your recipes! I just got my first crock pot (and I’m a senior) and am exploring the world of slow cooked food. Thanks!

For the first time in my life, last night I tried this squash and it was DELICIOUS! Next time I will try your method of putting the whole squash in the oven. Thanks for the advise :)
