SAY WHAAATTT?! Mac and cheese that's delicious without the traditional noodles! This is a recipe that kids and adults alike will love! Spaghetti squash is a fantastic replacement for traditional noodles – make it a habit to use these tender, squash noodles in all of your favorite pasta recipes. Enjoy! 

Servings: 6 

Here’s what you need…

  • 1 large spaghetti squash

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • Sea salt

  • Black pepper

  • 2 cups broccoli florets, steamed

  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil

  • 1 Tablespoon coconut flour

  • 1 cup coconut milk

  • 1 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded

  • ½ cup grated parmesan, plus 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan as optional garnish

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional garnish

 Instructions:

 

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Cut the spaghetti squash in half. Scoop out and discard the seeds. Spray the center of both halves of the squash with cooking spray, and place the cut side up on a cookie sheet. Roast until tender when pierced with a knife, about 50 minutes.

  2. Remove the squash from the oven, and let cool. Once it’s safe to handle, scrape the flesh into a large bowl. Add the steamed broccoli florets to the bowl, and set aside.

  3. In a large saucepan, melt the coconut oil on medium heat, and whisk in the coconut flour. Add the coconut milk, and whisk quickly. Turn heat down to low, add the cheddar and ½ cup grated Parmesan to the saucepan, and stir until melted. Remove from heat.

  4. Pour the cheese sauce over the spaghetti squash and broccoli mixture, and toss until all the squash is covered.

  5. Dish into 4 portion, and top off with the salt and pepper to taste plus red pepper flakes and extra Parmesan if you wish!
