Spaghetti Squash with Rosemary, Shallots & ParmesanThis is one of my favorite dishes to make throughout the week—Spaghetti Squash with Rosemary, Shallots & Parmesan. Serve with Turkey Meatballs, Crab Cakes or any meat option of your choice.

Bolder, brighter, and richer in nutrients than your basic penne pasta, spaghetti squash is the perfect addition to an easy family dinner. One cup of cooked spaghetti made from white, enriched noodles, contains approximately 220 calories, 42 grams of carbohydrates and very few nutrients.

Comparably, one cup of cooked spaghetti squash provides about 42 calories, 10 grams of carbohydrates, and a host of important nutrients such as vitamin A and potassium.
