Skinni-Mini Spaghetti Squash + Fresh Herb “Pasta”

Spaghetti Squash PastaSpaghetti Squash PastaSpaghetti Squash PastaLet’s talk about how much I love cooking with fresh herbs.

I think I had a little bit of separation anxiety with my outdoor basil plant this winter. Of course there’s always the store-packaged herbs that you can buy in the produce section but there’s something so zen/invigorating/amazing about going out barefoot and hand-picking your herbs. Right?!

So spring is in full effect and my taste buds are craving fresh ingredients. The other day I made this spaghetti squash and it was to die. I will most-definitely be making it again.
