Microwave for 7 minutes then remove and let cool on plate while the second half cooks for 7 more minutes. Fork down the sides of each half to create noodles. Season with ground pepper & basil seasoning.

Stir in 2 big handfuls spinach once done.
  4. Serve with spaghetti squash and other toppings such as avocado, crumbled goat cheese, fresh basil & nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor.

    Dying to own an #inspiralizer. As a vegetarian I find myself trying to switch up the veggie game as often as possible!
