Tips Tricks & Warnings

  • Cut the cap and the bottom of the squash off so it rests flat on your cutting board. This will make it easier to chop in half.
  • Add a little garlic or curry powder to your seasoning for a flavorful kick!
  • Cut the squash in half horizontally to get longer spaghetti Squash noodles.
  • You can substitute Veg-e-Burger with beef.
  • If you want a creamier white sauce, use half and half instead of whole milk.
  • If the white sauce is too thick, add more milk. If too think add more flour.
