This unique Spaghetti Squash "Pasta" dish is light and meat-free. It's the perfect dinner for a hot summer day.
Spaghetti Squash is sometimes the go-to vegetable replacement for pasta, but it doesn't always jive with the recipe. The texture isn't exactly like pasta, nor is the taste. Most often I find that putting the sauce or vegetables in a pasta dish over a bed of cauliflower rice or quinoa works much better.
Spaghetti squash is a strange animal, but in this recipe, which originally called for angel hair pasta, it works beautifully! You can substitute almonds for the walnuts if you like, and the cheese is optional. It's a light, meatless dish that will be a great go-to when the weather warms up!
Since spaghetti squash won't be in season for much longer, you can use zucchini "noodles" in the summer when it's abundant. Like in my Pesto Zucchini "Spaghetti" recipe.
That zucchini recipe also has bacon, which would be a great addition to this recipe as well. (Duh. It makes everything better!)
