Winter is for comfort food, and is there anything more comforting than homemade spaghetti? I think not! Unfortunately though, comfort food tends not to be the healthiest of options. Turns out I’ve got ya covered 🙂 As I mentioned with my zucchini noodles post, there are a lot of healthier ways to enjoy a comfort food like pasta, without having to sacrifice the deliciousness of pasta.
So for this recipe, instead of using real pasta, we’re using spaghetti squash. Spaghetti squash is a miraculous vegetable that once roasted, peels into noodles! As it is a vegetable, it a great nutritional profile, with 1 serving having 300% of your daily vitamin A recommendations.
For the sauce, I like to put organic ground turkey in it, but you could definitely make it vegetarian or vegan without the turkey, as it’s also full of cooked veggies! For the sauce, I used an organic tomato sauce that was already full of garlic to give it an extra kick!
