Spaghetti squash is a winter vegetable, but readily available year round. It has a nice, nutty flavor and is super easy to cook. It’s a trifecta of perfection when it comes to choices-available, flavorful and easy! Spaghetti squash is an oval vegetable native to Central America and is closely related to pumpkin and zucchini. The rind is firm and tough surrounding a thick flesh with the seeds gathered in the middle much like its cousin, the pumpkin. It’s typically medium in size, about 5-8 pounds, which is kinda heavy for a veggie. It has a mild flavor that easily absorbs the flavors used with it so it works well with just about anything. It is known as spaghetti squash because the flesh inside, when cooked can be easily shredded into long ‘noodles’. It does not taste like pasta however so if that’s what you are looking for, you will be disappointed.
