The 4-pound spaghetti squash is a golden yellow, oval shaped vegetable that is healthy, tasty and easy to cook. Squash is a good source of vitamin A, potassium and niacin, and the spaghetti squash is high in beta carotene. The seeds, when cooked or roasted, are high in selenium.
The spaghetti squash gets its name for how it looks after it is cooked. It becomes stringy and tastes great hot or cold. Spaghetti squash is available year around, but as it is a winter vegetable, its peak season is from fall to winter.
