Garlic Spaghetti

Garlic Spaghetti Squash with Kale is a low carb dish can replace pasta dishes, and be just as tasty! If you have never prepared a spaghetti squash recipe before, don’t worry! All you need to have is some time to bake the squash. Once the squash is cut in half and bakes, take a fork, stick it into the rim of the squash, and pull! The flesh of the squash should be tender enough to easily stick a fork in it. You will notice that the flesh comes out in strands, just like spaghetti! You can do so much with spaghetti squash. It can replace pasta in so many dishes-lasagna, puttanesca, carbonara, and so much more!
