Creamed Spaghetti Squash with Mushrooms

I really enjoy pumpkin and I really enjoy mushrooms and what’s better than combining these two healthy superfoods, to create a delicious meal. What I like to make is oven-baked spaghetti squash with mushrooms with a creamy sauce.

When I was at university I often did cook for small quick meals just for myself and that is why a whole spaghetti squash is too much for one meal. So I did usually bake the squash and refrigerate one half to prepare a dish for the next day.

With today’s half, I will prepare a creamy spaghetti squash with mushrooms.

Whether as a main course or as a hearty side dish, mushrooms can be prepared in many different ways.

They are especially interesting for vegetarians, as mushrooms are a great alternative to replace meat in many dishes.
