Are you familiar with spaghetti squash? I am a big fan of squashes and now it is the right season to enjoy them. My favorite ever, is acorn squash though! I love it baked with some maple syrup and sage. But, let's leave that for another post soon! This cheesy baked spaghetti squash it is so delicious, and it will make a really nice dinner. Especially, if you want to add more vegetable on your menu, or you watching your carbs! It is gluten free and keto friendly! You can customize it by adding more vegetables, like spinach, kale, broccoli, or different protein like chicken or sausage. The most difficult part is cutting the squash as they do have a hard shell. On my video below, I showed you a little trick that helps. I hope you like this hearty and comforting recipe, as much as I do!
