Let’s be real: there’s really nothing remarkable about spaghetti squash other than its spaghetti-ness. And even the spaghetti-ness is a little bit of a stretch—the people who say things like, “It tastes just like pasta, you’d never know it’s squash!” are lying to themselves, to you, and to the world. But spaghetti squash is a great source of beta carotene and its mild flavor means that, like pasta, it pairs well with virtually anything you add to it.
