I am almost as excited to share this recipe with you as I was to devour it. It was full of flavour and quite simple to make which for a week night is a win-win meal in my books.

This dish is probably not what one would expect as it combines a perfectly baked warm spaghetti squash with a refreshingly cool red cabbage slaw. This little boat of vegetarian goodness was topped of with the best guacamole I think I have ever made or tasted (thanks me!) I admit that I have always prided myself for my regular chunky “guac” but this cheeky little dip goes the distance and adds incredible flavour to this layered surprise. I seriously could eat an entire bowl of this stuff but alas I did have to share with the rest of the family. Note to self, make a double batch next time.

Spaghetti squash is a versatile food perfect for a lower carb diet. It can be used as a substitute for high carb pastas and it contains many nutrients, including folic acid, potassium beta carotene and Vitamin A. It is low in calories, averaging 42 calories per one cup.

These Mexican spaghetti squash bowls are easy to make, vegetarian, vegan and low carb. The guacamole that tops this lovely meal is only the begining of the fiesta that will happen in your mouth.  Olé!
