March 22, 2018

If you have not already, you should get to know spaghetti squash because it is extremely cool. And you will undoubtedly have a “…whoa…” moment in the course of making it. Specifically when you have roasted it and all the spaghetti appears.

And the spaghetti squash makes a good partner for kale in a salad.

Also add some shredded chicken for a full dinner. Or just as is for like a really good lunch thing.
