Spaghetti Squash

I learned out to prepare spaghetti squash a few years ago and I have really come to rely on this vegetable.  It’s a great way to bulk up a recipe and get in extra veggies!  My favorite way to use it is under my turkey chili… but it’s also good with soups and used as traditional spaghetti.
First, I cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise…
and scoop out the center/seeds…
Place upside down in dish and fill with approximately an inch of water…
Cover with saran wrap and microwave between 10 and 12 minutes…
(Or bake upside down on cookie sheet for 45 minutes at 350F)
Scoop out the spaghetti squash…
Roni made a great video post on exactly how to prepare it…. Click Here!

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
