Hello, Gourdeous

Don't be intimidated by its rough exteriors—winter squash is a slightly sweet and tender addition to pastas, soups, and chilies. Use these recipes to get your daily dose of this nutrient-packed veggie.

Creamy Spaghetti Squash With Asparagus and Rosemary

Spaghetti squash is a dieter's dream—it has less than 50 calories per serving, yet contains plenty of vitamin A and fiber. In this recipe, squash serves as a substitute for pasta, slashing carbs and adding a sweet quality. But the dish maintains a rich flavor with part-skim ricotta cheese and toasted pine nuts.
