Spaghetti Squash is a healthy substitute to pasta – low in calories and fat!  Here is one of the easiest spaghetti squash meal prep recipes you can make.

This is The simplest and EASIEST way to meal prep with spaghetti squash.

Named for its yellow-gold spaghetti-like strands of flesh, Organic Spaghetti Squash is a smooth, yellow watermelon-shaped squash. Unlike summer squash (which is picked when immature and skin is tender), Spaghetti Squash has a hard, thick skin and only the flesh is eaten.

Organic Spaghetti Squash is preferred for reasons of taste, health and the environment. Once cooked, the spaghetti-like strands of flesh can be separated with a fork, removed from the shell and served as a salad ingredient, as part of a casserole, or with sauce (similar to pasta).

Choose squash that have a hard, deep-colored rind free of blemishes or moldy spots. Tender skin indicates immaturity or poor quality. The hard skin protects the flesh and allows it to store longer than summer squash. Store Spaghetti Squash in a cool, preferably dark, well-ventilated area for up to three months. Wrap cut pieces in plastic and refrigerate up to five days. Organic produce should not be stacked with non-organic produce. – via Melissa’s
