Spaghetti Squash Soup

Don’t let “spaghetti” befool you! Many of you would have got the impression that it is a soup made of squash fruit with spaghetti on top of it for some weird reason, but thankfully that’s not the case. Spaghetti squash soup is a soup made up of spaghetti squash — a fruit containing many big seeds in its core and is mostly yellowish (sometimes orange sometimes ivory) in color. Sticking a fork in a cooked up squash will separate its flesh into long and thin spaghetti like strings, hence the name spaghetti squash. Being rich in nutrients and low on calories scale, it makes for a popular fruit to be added in different dishes or just consumed in its basic form. It can be baked, boiled, or steamed. One good way to consume spaghetti squash is to make a soup out of it. How? Below have been listed some spaghetti squash soup recipes to delight your yummy buds.
