Keto Four Cheese Spaghetti Squash

Keto Four Cheese Spaghetti Squash. Low-carb four cheese spaghetti squash is in and traditional high carb spaghetti noodles are out. Did we say a bunch of cheese?

A low-carb alternative to regular alfredo pasta.

Relatively foolproof, in both preparation and taste. I mean, when tons of garlic, heavy cream, and cheese come together and adorn one of fall’s favorite vegetable, what could possibly go wrong? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

The flavors on point and the presentation is quite impressive. A gentle scraping of a fork across the surface of the spaghetti squash reveals tender strands of “spaghetti” once fully cooked. The strands mix into the other add-ins, creating a sumptuously aromatic, and a decadent seasonal pasta experience while you scrape away at the squash, only without all the calories and carbs.

Spaghetti Squash vs. Regular White Flour Spaghetti

Unlike many other squash varieties spaghetti squash is a winter squash with a mild flavor that, isn’t very sweet. With an added crunch and much lower carbohydrate profile, the squash fills in for regular spaghetti pasta. There are 31 grams and 7 grams of carbohydrates in a 100-gram portion of both regular white spaghetti pasta and spaghetti squash, respectively. With 27 calories to regular spaghetti’s 158 calories per 100 gram serving, spaghetti squash also has much fewer calories.

A good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, vitamin B6, and iron.
