Who doesn't love a big old bowl of noodles? What if your noodles were actually vegetables in disguise? OH DANG! Once you've baked the squash and stored it in your refrigerator then it's basically a 2 minute bowl of noodles. Super easy way to eat healthy. ๐Ÿ˜‰ This is a much healthier upgrade from the constipation-causing-classic. Mind you, spaghetti squash is a bit crunchier then normal noodles, but if you know this ahead of time and have yummy toppings then it's really a great dish.

  • 1 c spaghetti squash

This is fast becoming the sole cheese source in my house. We put it on noodles, pizza, lasagna, steamed veggies, and more! It is much healthier then a lot of the other cheese alternatives out there because it is made out of real food instead of a bunch of weird ingredients and stabilizers. Thank-yoooouuu Dana from minimalistbaker.com!!!
