Have you ever tried cooking with spaghetti squash? It’s absolutely delicious. It easily replaces spaghetti pasta in your favorite Italian dishes.
Now this Spaghetti Squash with Browned Butter Sauce and Parmesan Cheese recipe is so simple to make, yet it will easily please the pickiest palate. Both kids and adults will love it. In fact, my middle son gobbled it up and I (very unlady like) licked my plate clean, literally. But I didn’t feel too guilty – this dish is pretty healthy and gluten free.
Where to Get Kitchen Pantry Essentials
I get my other kitchen pantry supplies like sea salt, black pepper, spices, coconut oil, and other essentials either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Bob’s Red Mill baking soda, for instance, is about $3 at my local health food store and $6 on Amazon. But it’s only $2.03 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.
