For years, I’ve seen “spaghetti squash” recipes and been too intimidated by the fact you have somehow turn a hard yellow thing into “spaghetti.” I’m not a magician! Then, I found this helpful Kitchn article and this super helpful Inspired Taste video, and all of a sudden I’m a cooking magician. At least for spaghetti squash. Fast forward to last night, and I finally made 1 of the 19 spaghetti squash recipes from my my “Eat Me” board! Listen people, run don’t walk to your grocery and get the ingredients for this recipe! It is so creamy, so yummy and perfect for those cold February nights. Don’t be turned off by the Blog Name Paleo Gluten Free Eats– I’m not Paleo, Gluten or a Whole 30 fiend. I do, however, love any lactose-free recipes and those buzzwords guarantee that I’m not eating always eating vegan recipes (and then tossing in bacon….oops). I’m so excited to eat all of these leftovers.
