Pesto Spaghetti Squash w/ Avocado

(GF, RSF, Best in fall // winter)

Serves 1

We’ve never really gotten over the spaghetti squash as a pasta alternative. It provides quality fibre and still manages to taste great! It’s also really fascinating that it looks exactly like spaghetti!!!! This is another dish to add in a variety of seasonal veggies if you feel so called. We hope you love it as much as we do!
