Spaghetti Squash Nuked

Hello!

I want to share a quick way to cook spaghetti squash.  Why would you even want to cook it you ask?  Cause its carb free and its a veggie.    😉

Before I share the easiest way to cook squash, I wanted to show you a couple of really good finds that my kid and I found tonight.

My kid needed wanted a plaid skirt for her Halloween costume and so we went to the Goodwill to see what we could find.

She didn’t find a skirt, but look what I found!

Not one, but six!  I already washed them and put them in the cupboard.  I usually find a couple glasses here and there but this time I found six.  Since I’m down to 3 I thought it was a smart idea to pick some up with the holidays coming.  These are really pretty right?

I was pretty happy at .99 cents a piece.  That seems to be the magic number for my budget these days.

Okay, so I got lucky but  my kid didn’t.  So we went and found this cute skirt and long socks for $20.00 at a clothing store.  Kind of a spunky nerdy girl!  I think its adorable.  She’s wearing big black framed glasses too.  Its pretty cute!

Okay, now for the squash.

Cut a spaghetti squash in half.  Be careful, not easy.

Scrape out the seeds.

Put face down in about 3/4 inch water and cover with plastic wrap.

Cook in the microwave for at least 10 minutes until fork tender.

Then bring it out and let it cool slightly.  Use a fork like you would rice and just start pulling apart.

This is pretty cool because if you are on WW its ZERO points and if you are gluten free it works AND its veggies.  This is actually kind of a perfect solution to pasta.

Can I just say right now, its not pasta.  Nothing is like pasta.  Nothing!  I HEART Pasta!

Put sauce on it and think of the positive reasons to cook it!
