Swapping spaghetti squash for pasta is one of those win-win situations. While I do not deny myself pasta or carbs, I do find I feel better when I eat equal amounts of carbs and protein. That is what works best for me. So at lunch, I like to have lots and lots of vegetables. Most times it is a quick salad, but sometimes I can have a wonderful lunch of Spaghetti Squash with Asparagus Primavera. This one is filled with Spring vegetables. It is quick and easy to make thanks to cooking the spaghetti squash in the microwave. Boy is it a time saver.

Today I am sharing this recipe over at Amee’s Savory Dishes. Amee has been diagnosed with breast cancer and very recently had surgery.  She is an inspiration with her determination and I am happy to “pay it forward” by helping her.  You can help her to by simply popping over for the recipe.  For long time readers, you know my husband had a heart attack and heart surgery a few years ago.  I was so lucky to have some of my blogging friends help me out by guest posting recipes for me.  You see when you read a blog, like Food Done Light or Amee’s Savory Dishes, you help us make a little money because of the ads on the side.  This is how we make an income and help to support our families.  It is a huge relief to have friends help out and not have to worry about the income.
