Spaghetti squash is insanely fun to eat, no matter your age. Scraping the flesh to create long noodle-like threads is like raking a little garden, but way more satisfying and delicious. Not only is spaghetti squash a fun food, it is loaded with potassium, vitamins c and A and other antioxidants. Adding to the appeal, it is low in calories—about forty calories in one cup cooked—as well as fat, sodium and carbohydrates. This tasty alternative to pasta is also high in fibre to keep you feeling full longer.
Instead of topping the squash with a typical tomato sauce, the sweet, sour, tangy flavours of pad Thai—predominantly from tamarind—heighten this dish in a new and unexpected way. capping it off with crisp bean sprouts, peanuts and cilantro makes it as delectable as the restaurant version we love so much.
