Baconful Spaghetti Squash Recipe

Who loves bacon!? When it was time to start making dinner tonight,  I checked my refrigerator and saw that I had bacon and I had spaghetti squash.  So, I did some investigating to find what I could make with these two items.  The results were amazing!  My son and husband both loved it (they’re my food critics).  You can make some changes to have several different versions.  I used Gorgonzola cheese (similar to blue cheese), but it’s also good with Parmesan or Italian blends of cheeses.  You can use spaghetti squash or opt to use pasta instead. YUM!

Spaghetti squash vs. pasta?

You probably expect spaghetti squash to be more nutritious than pasta, but each one has some benefits that surpass the other.  For example:  spaghetti squash and pasta are both low fat, low in salt and have 5 percent of the recommended daily intake of dietary fiber. Pasta has 158 calories, squash has only 27, but pasta has 8 times more protein, providing at least 10 percent of the recommended daily intake based on a 2,000-calorie-a-day diet. Spaghetti squash has 7 grams of carbohydrates; pasta has 31 grams.
