One of the things I love about eating spaghetti squash is that my mental veggie consumption checklist for my family goes … check, check, and check! Plus it tastes great too – especially in this Spaghetti Squash Carbonara recipe. My 9-year-old honestly isn’t a huge fan when I pair spaghetti squash with tomato sauce, but she’ll scarf down just about anything that’s covered in bacon and cream (won’t we all? LOL). So I hope your family enjoys this one as much as mine does! :)
My Go-To Store-Bought Bacon: Applegate
For this recipe, I used our favorite bacon – Applegate Organic! One of the things I love about their company is that they understand that bacon and other meats shouldn’t be an everyday thing. One of the changes we made when we cut out highly processed food was to reduce our consumption of meat. This recipe is a perfect example of how you can use meat just to flavor a dish – instead of it always being the centerpiece.
And to top things off, Applegate recently announced their commitment to removing GMOs from their entire supply chain, which means a third-party will verify that their meat comes from animals on a non-GMO diet. Woo hoo! Enjoy this new recipe. :)
