Dinner time made easy

Love subbing spaghetti squash for pasta in my favorite dishes, like this cacio e pepe (cheese & pepper).  It’s high in fiber, rich in flavor and super easy to make.


  • 1 spaghetti squash, halved and seeded
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley, optional
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • red-pepper flakes (or fresh cracked pepper if you prefer no heat)
  • salt, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.Drizzle squash with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Roast until tender, about 40 minutes.
  2. Once cool, scrape flesh with fork and toss with 3 tablespoons olive oil, parmesan, and parsley. Season with pepper.
