Acorn squash, butternut squash, spaghetti squash—it all packs a ton of nutrition and tastes pretty good too. So here are easy ways to cook it up.
We know: sometimes you just want to faceplant into a heaping plate of pasta. But all you carb-conscious guys can skip the fettuccini in flavor of spaghetti squash, which delivers the same texture and heartiness. Halve the squash and remove the seeds, then roast at 350 degrees until softened (about 35 minutes). Once it's cooked, scoop out the flesh and toss with tomato sauce. You can up the nutritional content by adding other veggies like roasted zucchini, mushrooms, sauteed peppers, onions, or garlic. Still craving Italian? Top your plate with a turkey meatball.
