Spaghetti Squash is a unique type of squash that when cooked looks like strands of spaghetti. In fact, some people prepare this type of squash exactly the same way they would traditional spaghetti. This is definitely a much healthier version.

1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 cup grated white cheddar cheese
