If you want to cook spaghetti squash but don’t know exactly how or cutting it is too difficult, check out this post and the helpful video right below.

I love substituting cooked spaghetti squash for traditional pasta to keep some of my meals lower carb. Kids love it too but cooked the right way.

Whether it’s in the microwave, baked, steamed or cooked in the slow-cooker, this veggie is rich in folic acid, potassium, and vitamin A!
