Spaghetti Squash. Friend or foe?

A few months ago whilst idly exploring Google to find a way to "cheat" weight loss I stumbled across a page on spaghetti squash. It is a low/no carb alternative to pasta. Now I don't shy away from new things so I thought I'd look in to it and before you know it I had bought seeds. The packet stated the germination would occur in 14 days so imagine my surprise when they sprouted in three! Here is a pic of the seedlings at 8 days and I've just planted them out in a bigger pot. I haven't found any in the shops to see what the taste is like so I'm in eager anticipation. Stay posted for reviews when the fruit has grown and ripened. Once I have ripe fruit I will be more than happy to pass on some seeds. If anyone has tried it, please let me know what it's like.


  1. I frequently eat Spaghetti Squash as a replacement for pasta. It doesn't have a very stong thing to keep in mind is that is has a low nutritional value ( not high in vitamins or minerals) You might want to pair this item with other veggies to get your vitamins.

  2. Thanks for the tip! I'll keep that in mind. I was thinking of pairing it with tomato and spinach to make it feel a bit Italian-ish
