The biggest draw of this winter squash is how easy it is to use it in place of spaghetti in your favorite pasta dishes, trading the heavy carbo-loading of flour-based pasta for a lighter, more nutritious alternative.

In this recipe for Parmesan Spaghetti Squash, the vegetable is roasted, shredded, and then sauteed with cannellini beans, balsamic vinegar, thyme, sage, and parmesan cheese for an end result that's such a classic comfort food that you won't even miss the carbs.
