One of the food trends on the rise is vegetable based pasta substitutions. I have a few recipes to share in upcoming posts, but today we will focus on the squash family. Spaghetti squash is not new to the nutrition world, but with the recent trend it continues to rise in popularity.
Spaghetti squash is a larger variety of the winter squash family. The flesh of the squash is a bright yellow or orange color and the center is filled with seeds. Once the squash is cooked and the seeds are removed the flesh separates into thin spaghetti like pieces.
