December 7, 2018

I hope you’re hungry because holy volume! I am all about my meals being very voluminous. I mean, the more food the better, right?

 

This dish is the result of having a rest day from the gym, loads of vegetables in the kitchen, and wanting to get creative—and it turned out extremely delicious.

  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper

  • ¼ tsp garlic salt

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  2. Cut the spaghetti squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Salt and pepper the squashand place flesh side down in a glass baking dish. Add a few tablespoons of water to the dish. Microwave for 10 minutes.
