Spaghetti Squash Gratins with Chunky Tomato Sauce - Recipes

Bag the Bread

•   Flip the chip and dip. Swap those chips for fresh crunchy crudités such as broccoli, carrots, cucumbers, snow peas or endive lettuce.

•   Nix the Noodles. Try spaghetti squash. The name says it all with this veggie varietal. Once baked, spaghetti squash can be flaked with a fork to reveal spaghetti like strands to offer the perfect bed for your favorite pasta sauce. Try this technique in our Spaghetti Squash Gratins with Chunky Tomato Sauce (shown) or Spaghetti Squash with Chicken, Mushrooms and Spinach.
