 Autumn might be over, but squash is still available in abundance. With the surge of excitement for vegetables masquerading as carbohydrates, it’s time that spaghetti squash had its moment. There’s no need for a spiralizer or other kitchen gadgets when making this recipe, just bake and scrape the strands of the squash out into perfect strands and serve with a hearty bolognese sauce.
You can find spaghetti squash at London’s Borough Market and all good local greengrocers.
What’s your favourite recipe that uses vegetables as a clever alternative to standard carbohydrates (such as rice, pasta etc)?
