Use spaghetti squash for ‘diet’ pasta
April 8, 2020
As promised in my previous column “Florentine it,” I am going to share another way to add vegetables to a picky eater’s diet. Use spaghetti squash instead of pasta. This substitution also helps reduce some carbohydrates. Spaghetti squash does still contain some carbs as it is considered a starchy vegetable. However, one cup of cooked spaghetti squash has just 40 calories and 10 grams of carbohydrate. Whereas, one cup of cooked spaghetti noodles has about 200 calories and 40 grams of carbohydrates.
Spaghetti squash is a good source of fiber, vitamin C, manganese, and vitamin B6.
