What is spaghetti squash?

Spaghetti squash is a type of winter squash with a long, cylindrical shape. Its flesh is light yellow or orange and has a stringy texture that resembles spaghetti noodles.

This squash is a good source of vitamins A and C and fiber. It can be cooked in various ways, including baking, roasting, and steaming. Here are step-by-step instructions on how to cook spaghetti squash!

When is spaghetti squash in season?

Spaghetti squash is in season from late summer through early fall, so now is the perfect time to try this recipe. However, you can find spaghetti squash in most supermarkets at any time of year.

Why is this squash so popular?

There are many reasons why spaghetti squash is popular. One reason is that it is a healthy alternative to other types of pasta. 

Spaghetti squash is also naturally gluten-free, which makes it a good option for people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. 

Additionally, spaghetti squash is low in carbs and calories and has high fiber content, making it a good choice for those who follow a low-carb diet.

Spaghetti squash is the only squash that you can enjoy on the keto diet! Because the net carbs in spaghetti squash are much lower than in other winter squashes.

What does spaghetti squash taste like?

If you’ve never had spaghetti squash, you might wonder what it tastes like. Spaghetti squash is a bit of a chameleon when it comes to flavour. 

When cooked, it takes on a mild, slightly sweet flavour similar to other winter squash varieties. However, it also has a slight crunch that makes it unique. 

When combined with other ingredients in a dish, like our spaghetti squash pie, the flavour of the squash takes a backseat to the other flavours in the dish.

Can you eat the squash raw?

You can eat raw spaghetti squash, but it’s not as tasty as when cooked. Cooking the squash helps to bring out its natural sweetness.
