Tasty Recipes For National Spaghetti Day 2018


Get your sauce ready because January 4th is National Spaghetti Day. Typically made from semolina flour, spaghetti originated in Italy, but has become a worldwide favorite. Although there are countless spaghetti and pasta dishes, we want you to try a new approach to National Spaghetti Day. This year, we are celebrating spaghetti squash!

Spaghetti Fact: Americans purchased about 1.3 million pounds of spaghetti in the year 2000. If you lined all the noodles in those packages up, they could circle the Earth nine times.

What Is Spaghetti Squash?

Spaghetti squash is very versatile and is low in carbohydrates. Consider this: one cup of regular pasta has 200 calories, while one cup of cooked spaghetti squash only has 42 calories. Like carrots, spaghetti squash contains beta-carotene, which is beneficial for healthy eyesight, lowering cholesterol levels, and great for people with insulin resistance. Additionally, spaghetti squash is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which promote healthy brain function and help to fight heart disease.

Since spaghetti squash is still in season, you should take advantage of the following recipes. Roasting spaghetti squash is the best way to cook it to get the desired spaghetti-like texture.

Quinoa And Spinach Spaghetti Squash Boats:
