This Summer Vegetable Spaghetti Squash recipe is super easy to make and very inexpensive. Once you buy the Spaghetti Squash (I paid $4.00) you can add in any vegetables, herbs, cheese, etc, you have on hand! I was reading a BuzzFeed article on how to cut and cook Spaghetti Squash and now I will forever use this method! Click on the link for tips on how to cook Spaghetti Squash from BuzzFeed. Click here!
