Garlic Spaghetti Squash with Herbs

Lindsay Ostrom


This garlic and herb spaghetti squash is such a great example of how to eat healthy without giving up on flavor. With the holidays coming, I always try to reign myself in a bit eating-wise to compensate for the inevitable pig out come Thanksgiving and Christmas. The only problem is that delicious comfort foods are bombarding me from every corner of the internet. How’s a girl supposed to keep her growing mid-section in check with so much temptation out there?

Well thanks to Lindsay and this garlic spaghetti squash with herbs, I won’t be crying over salad greens. She says,

“This is the kind of food that I love eating: simple, vibrant, veggie-friendly, and packed with flavor and unique textures.” 

Me too Lindsay, me too. So this holiday season, don’t rule out cheese. Just eat it on spaghetti squash instead of actual pasta. Skip the meat, but pile on some toasted pine nuts for protein and texture. Who needs heavy sauces when you have vibrant fresh herbs for flavor? There’s always a way to have a healthy, yet satisfying meal with a couple of simple trade-offs.

I’m Lindsay, and I do the cooking, writing, and photography. My husband Bjork is in charge of the tech support and income stuff for Pinch of Yum. Plus he’s cute and I like him. Together we’re the Pinch of Yum team. My “real job” is teaching elementary school age kids how to read and write and do math. I thought about becoming a full time blogger once, but my heart needs to teach. I love it. In the cooking department, I’m a food enthusiast with an appetite for almost anything. I love to cook vegetarian dishes, but we’re not strictly anything when it comes to what we eat. I love desserts, especially straight up salted dark chocolate. I try to cook things that are practical, interesting, and delicious. I adore noodles, curry, lentils, and pasta. Is that the same as noodles? Doesn’t matter. I love it all.
