Spaghetti! One ingredient is all it takes for a side dish that will make you swoon. Unlike other winter squash, this variety has a stringy texture that mimics spaghetti.

It’s amazing when baked and covered in your favorite pasta sauce you’ll never know you’re not eating all those carbs. Eat anywhere you would eat pasta, or just eat as a side dish. Either way, we think you’ll love it.

  • 1 spaghetti squash.
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Remove the stem from the squash and cut in half. Using a very sharp knife will make the process easier.
Put the squash on a baking sheet, season with pepper, and bake for 40 minutes. Scoop the flesh out, separate it with a fork if necessary, and serve.
