Spaghetti Squash Mashed

Spaghetti Squash with Millet

0

Spaghetti squash gets its name from its appearance. After it’s cooked, the inside flesh pulls out of the shell in long strands, resembling spaghetti pasta. In this recipe I make a fantastic blend of just the right amount of millet, spaghetti squash and olive oil, topped off with a fabulous marinara sauce.

With the millet’s creamy texture, this mixture has the consistency of the all-time favorite mashed potatoes. Millet is a delicious grain that can accompany many types of food. It is rich in some very important nutrients, including copper, manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium. This grain is a good source of protein and is gluten-free, making it a great alternative to wheat.

Spaghetti squash contains a wide range of vitamins including C, A, B-6, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid and vitamin K. (2)

The ripe grape tomatoes brighten the pungent flavors of this Italian classic marinara sauce. Even though more attention is given to their delicious flavors, this dish’s ingredients are not short on their nutritional content.
