Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Who doesn’t love pasta?! I know I do! But sometimes it’s easy to get carried away with excess servings, and your meal can quickly add up in calories and carbs. So I wanted to share a dish you can make that gives you that pasta fix without feeling guilty afterwards. Plus, you’re making all your noodles veggie based, so it’s not only healthy but very affordable too!
