Spaghetti squash makes a side dish since it is about the lowest in carbs of all the squashes. (Net carbs after fiber is deducted is about 3.4 grams per half cup cooked.) Wendy cuts it in half vertically and cleans out the seeds. Either microwave it cut-side-down or bake it in the oven with a little water in the pan until soft. Running a fork over the squash produces the strands. Serve with tomato sauce and cheese, just like pasta.
