Vegan Cheezy Spaghetti Squash

Even if you eat dairy, you will love this recipe. Its a perfect example of how health food can be comfort food. There is no dairy, eggs, nuts or gluten so its allergy-friendly, but it is hearty, and delicious. I added spinach and sundried tomatoes to it, but you can modify add-ins to suit your taste. Other possibilities are green peas, mushrooms, broccoli, and/or bell peppers. Tossing in a few teaspoons of Konjac for Life konjac powder at the end keeps the sauce thick and creamy, makes it more satifying, and adds both fibre and prebiotics. For such a comforting dish, it is extremely low in calories, so go ahead and indulge!
