The One Thing You Need to Know About Spaghetti Squash…

…if you’ve never made it.  Is that it’s the ultimate health food for lazy people.  And it won’t increase your gravitational pull.  Click here to read that 1 cup of SS equals only 42 calories.  42!!

For realz.  All you do is cut it in half……Which is actually the most difficult step in preparing SS.  It’s hard to do and one wrong move could leave you permanently disfigured.  Which could be beneficial for those trying to lose weight.  Lol.  LMFO.  That stands for laugh my finger off.

Insert into oven and bake for 40 minutes at 400 degrees F.

Big John likes SS topped with fresh parm and parsley.  I served it sans cheese last time I made it and he politely requested that I never do that again.  Cheese lovin’ fool, that one.
