Skinny Spaghetti Squash Alfredo
Some of you are probably thinking, 'what the heck is this thing?' and 'is that really spaghetti in there?' It's a spaghetti squash and nope, no pasta here. This is the squash's natural texture when baked...cool, huh? It's not only beautiful but absolutely delicious. Spaghetti squash has a slight sweetness that complements any savory flavors you stuff into it. Top each half with a pinch of red pepper flakes and chopped parsley, if desired. Serve hot.

As an alternate way of baking: Poke a few holes deep into the whole squash with a paring knife. Bake for 60 minutes, remove from the oven, and let rest for 10 to 20 minutes before slicing in half with a large serrated knife. Scoop out the seedy inside, leaving the spaghetti strands.
