15 Spaghetti Squash Recipes

Spaghetti Squash has such a great consistency that makes it act like actual spaghetti!  But, don’t let it fool you – this squash has all the nutrients and minerals as any other type of squash.   My kids are PICKY, but it doesn’t stop them from eating spaghetti squash recipes.  Here are bunches from the files and from around the web – enjoy!

Main dish, side dish, dessert - how do you eat spaghetti squash?
