Recipe by Cucina Casalingo

Spaghetti squash makes a lovely and less caloric substitute for pasta! This dish has lots of flavor and lots of no point veggies! You can place the cooked squash in a pasta bowl and top with sauce or mix the two before serving. The yield of cooked spaghetti squash is variable so I prefer to use the pasta bowl method. And besides, a full pasta bowl looks far more appealing than food spread out on a dinner plate! Points: 7
