Healthy + Simple Pasta-Free Spaghetti
We're back at it with another healthy crockpot recipe!
This has been a favorite in our household for a few months. We've been telling tons of friends and family about our new obsession - spaghetti squash. It is quite literally a vegetable filled with a healthier version of spaghetti pasta, all by the miracle of nature! If you don't know by now, our house is stocked with strictly the best and freshest things; all from Milk & Eggs. What I love the most about this particular recipe is how simple it is to cook. It only has to sit in the crockpot for 4 hours, which makes dinnertime the least stressful part of the day - hands down! I also like to sub out different veggies into the mix.
