Why do they call it Spaghetti Squash? You really have to make it yourself to believe it, but the flesh of Spaghetti Squash comes out like pasta strands when it is cooked. How cool! The flavor is sweet and mild, and the texture is just slightly crunchy (al dente). It doesn’t taste like pasta, but you can use cooked Spaghetti Squash in recipes just as you would for pasta –only this squash will offer more nutritional benefit, fiber and only about 40 calories per cup Spaghetti Squash.
