I love pasta but I don't cook it very often because of its high carb content in relation to serving size. Spaghetti squash a great alternative that can be featured as the main part of a meal. A one cup serving of spaghetti squash only has 10 grams of carbohydrates and 42 calories compared to 45 grams of carbohydrates in pasta.

Besides being low in carbs, spaghetti squash provides an array of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A and C, thiamine and riboflavin. The dominant mineral is manganese, which helps with healthy bones and tissues. The fiber in the squash helps with satiety, blood sugar stabilization and lowering cholesterol.

Learn how to prepare your own roasted spaghetti squash by following the slides for step-by-step instructions.
