To make spaghetti squash, simply cut the squash in half, remove the seeds, and place face down on a baking sheet covered in water. Bake, then remove the “spaghetti” with a fork! SO easy, y’all!
For this Garlic Chickpea Spaghetti Squash, simply add the easy homemade spaghetti sauce and chickpeas (in the recipe below) to the spaghetti squash and enjoy! Such a fun, delicious, and healthy meal that’s also vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free!
