    Spaghetti squash marinara without any pasta. This is so delicious, easy to make and low in fat. It tastes just like spaghetti. I enjoyed it so much I wanted to share the recipe with all of you!

      This was great. I didn't have crushed tomotoes so I used a can of diced tomatoes and added some tomato sauce. I added some Italian seasoning too. I made spaghetti sauce before and cooked it a tad too long and it wasn't firm like spaghetti, this time it came out perfect. Very filling and all veggies, so good!

      I love this recipe because it's easy, healthy and delicious. I triple the garlic though, and use a garlic press. Overall fantastic though!
