Wondrous Spaghetti Squash

I’m freezing today! It’s really only 60; but it seems so cold, gray, and rainy. It is kind of hard to believe that only 3 days ago it was 90 degrees! I’m afraid summer is over and all those glorious vegetables will soon be gone.

Now it’s time for wonderful squash; butternut, acorn, pumpkin and one of my all time favorites – spaghetti squash. Have you ever tried spaghetti squash? It’s amazing and it’s great for all you non-carb believers out there. Spaghetti squash is so easy to prepare. You can top it with marinara sauce, pesto, mix it with greens – the possibilities are endless!
