Carbohydrates In A Pumpkin Spaghetti

If you're looking for a low alternative in carbohydrates to spaghetti, the well-known spaghetti squash could be the solution. Pumpkin is a non-starchy vegetable that contains approximately 5 grams of carbohydrates per half-cup serving, according to the American Diabetes Association. Its fibrous pulp also provides around 20 calories and vitamin C, B vitamins and fiber.

How to make it

The spaghetti squash is named for its fibrous flesh which, when cooked until tender, separates into strands that resemble spaghetti. You can roast it in the oven or in the microwave until it is tender. Let it cool and then use a fork to scrape the meat. Start with a little olive oil or butter and serve it alone or use it instead of spaghetti in your favorite pasta dish, as a base for "spaghetti" and meatballs.
