Every week we pull together some great Canadian recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient or dish. This week we're featuring a fall favourite - spaghetti squash recipes!
Spaghetti Squash, with its unique texture, is often a favourite with people who... well... don't love squash!
Like its name implies, the insides of the squash, when cooked and scraped out with a fork, resemble spaghetti noodles - which makes for all kinds of interesting ways you can use it in your cooking!
Don't be intimidated by these delicious squash when you see them at the grocery store - there are so many ways you can cook them. Turn them into hash browns, turn them into their own self-contained noodle bowls, use them as a substitution for rice or pasta - you can even make a pizza crust with them!
