Spaghetti Squash with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Veggies

IMG_6066

Spaghetti squash is a healthy alternative to regular spaghetti. Lower in carbs and full of vitamins and minerals, it’s a far cry from the empty starches inherent in white dough spaghetti. I paired this squash with roasted Brussels sprouts, red pepper, and onions. The result is a hearty, but skinny pasta dish. Enjoy!

    I haven’t had spaghetti squash in far too long! So glad it’s fall and they’re back in season. I love the idea of stuffing squash with more vegetables for double vegetable action!

    Do the sprouts carmalize when roasted without oil?

      No they won’t properly. You will either need to add oil or butter or something sugary, like maple syrup or honey.
