Lately I have seen so many yummy healthy recipes cooking with spaghetti squash and I have always wondered what all the hype was in the grain free community about spaghetti squash. I remember way back before I had kids I attempted to boil a spaghetti squash and my hubby and I were not impressed. It had no flavor, was not a fan of the texture, and I never tried to cook with it again until recently.
A Healthy Grain Free Recipe
My new goal is to take my family in a grain free direction more than ever because of my auto-immune disorder issues and to see if it helps my son who has Autism. I am always on the look out for healthier recipes and pasta substitutes I decided to give spaghetti squash another chance in my kitchen. I knew it was probably not the squash, but more the cook who killed it and so I gave it a whirl again. I was surprised at how much I really enjoyed and even my kids ate it like they would regular noodles.

- At the very end of your cooking add in your sea salt, basil, oregano, and parsley and mix around letting that cook for a minute or two.

What really made me love this recipe was the flavors of the garlic, onion, and just the right about of herbs and spices. It gave enough kick to the squash to make it taste really good.
