Tuscan Spaghetti Squash


Low carbohydrate diets are a growing trend in the United States. Paleo, low carb, keto you name it. I share a lot of carb filled recipes, but this recipe is perfect for my Low Carb and Keto loving friends!

If you haven’t noticed, another growing trend on my blog is “Tuscan.” Can you tell I love adding sundried tomatoes and parmesan to anything that I can?! Well… here you all go, gifting you all with another amazing tuscan flavored dish! Yay!

P.S. This recipe is SO easy and only takes 10 minutes to prep and 50 minutes to cook! It doesn’t require 500 bowls, pots and pans. You will use 1 sharp knife, baking sheet, small bowl and cheese grater, (which also means little clean up)! If a spaghetti squash seems intimidating to you, I promise it is not.

  4. Let cool and use a fork to pull the spaghetti squash apart and serve!
