Spaghetti squash is something that anyone looking to eat healthier or lose weight should know how to prepare. It's such a great low calorie side dish or pasta substitute and can be made in so many different ways. The two basic ways to make spaghetti squash are by roasting it or microwaving it. In either method, you can leave it whole or cut it in half. When you leave it whole, make sure to pierce it beforehand, like you would with a potato, so that the steam is released. When roasting, plan on about one hour or cooking time while it takes 10-15 minutes in the microwave.

2

In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat with the garlic. Cook until nice and fragrant, but not burning.

3

Toss the spaghetti squash with the garlic oil. Season with salt and pepper.
