About This Food

Description

Spaghetti squash gets its name from the noodle-like strands that form inside the gourd. The outside is firm and inedible, but once prepared, the inside scoops out easily.

Unlike flour-based spaghetti, spaghetti squash is low in calories and carbs and full of vitamin A, which supports eye functioning and immune health. It is a great source of fiber, which helps to keep blood sugar stable and improves digestive functions while making you feel full.

Because it is both a summer and winter squash, spaghetti squash can be enjoyed year round.
