I have recently become obsessed with spaghetti squash, do you love it too? I have realized that you can really cook anything in it, and everything tastes good mixed with spaghetti squash…it’s amazing. I wanted to stuff some broccoli into this bad boy, and then knew it needed some cheese…so, here we have Broccoli & Cheese Stuffed Spaghetti Squash.
I like Spaghetti Squash for a multitude of reasons; it’s low in calories, you get a lot of squash inside these, it tastes delicious, it’s healthy, and it’s easy to cook. I mean, I could go on, but these are the high points for me. I had a little bit of trouble finding the exact calorie count of a whole spaghetti squash, but I think I got pretty accurate with my results. I’ve been trying hard to lose weight, so I am keeping track of everything I eat using My Fitness Pal (friend me!), and I need to have those numbers as close as possible to what they really are.
