This Spaghetti Squash with Creamy Lemon Garlic Sauce is a nice break from the popular dairy-free cauliflower alfredo sauce and has a tangy taste of lemon.
It’s a naturally gluten-free dish since it’s made with spaghetti squash instead of traditional pasta (which you could also use if you didn’t like spaghetti squash or need gluten-free).
The creamy lemon garlic sauce is super easy to make in a matter of minutes with a Vitamix.
And, if you need to know how to cook spaghetti squash, just visit my post “How To Make Spaghetti Squash Pasta“…it’s really easy too.
This is also a clean, light dish that’s made with only a few simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand.
Completely opposite from a typical heavy traditional pasta dish covered with a very unhealthy sauce.
