Spaghetti Squash Alfredo

I love being able to substitute pasta noodles for spaghetti squash. I will say it does, obviously, have a squash flavor as opposed to a regular noodle. I rather enjoy it though and it doesn’t take away from the dish at all in my opinion. I feel like it adds more flavor!

***Sometimes I prefer to saute individual portions.  I add squash, about 2tbsp of sauce, and a scoop of the sauteed mixture to a pan (heat to medium) with 1ts olive oil.  Stir to heat and then remove*** Serve and enjoy.  I like to sprinkle with parsley before serving.
