Spaghetti is delicious but really, how many times can you eat it in a week? Not only is it crammed with carbs, but it can get boring pretty quickly. Luckily, spaghetti squash is here to save the day. The amazing thing about spaghetti squash is that it really does act like spaghetti. After roasting in the oven, the squash pulls apart into tiny strands that look like bona fide pasta. Just pour on your favorite spaghetti toppings and enjoy, or take it a step further.
This baked spaghetti squash recipe showcases everything there is to love about this winter vegetable. And every nook and cranny of it is filled with goodness, including tomato sauce, ricotta and Parmesan cheeses, fresh herbs and one egg to give it some "legs" and help it really stand up (and out) on a plate. Just like traditional baked spaghetti, this one's sure to be a family favorite.
Pro tip: Go crazy with this recipe and stuff it full of even more delicious ingredients — ground beef, sausage, bacon, bell peppers, mushrooms, whatever you enjoy!
