Spaghetti Squash Casserole

Spaghetti squash is the unsung hero of ingredients that is healthy, child friendly, and just fun. If you are looking for something different to make a new family favorite, I’ve got you covered.

This is a familiar taste with a twist. The squash really does work like spaghetti pasta and has a mild enough flavor that your family will love it.

I don’t have a long story about spaghetti squash. I grow it in the gardens, and it’s easy to prepare, so it’s a win on my table.

To cook the squash, pierce it a few times with a fork and microwave for 10 minutes. Remove carefully! It’s incredibly hot. Cut in half, remove seeds and then use a fork to separate the strands into a bowl. Use like spaghetti pasta. It’s that simple.
