Can you believe that, until today, Alex thought spaghetti squash was a squash that you put pasta inside? He’s way too adorable.

This recipe was a revelation for Alex and is my current obsession. Most of all, it’s proof you can eat healthy without being boring.

This recipe is flavourful, packed with different textures, and very easy to make. 

You can serve the spaghetti squash with any sauce you like!
