 Spaghetti squash is the original source of veggie noodles. Unlike other vegetables, it doesn’t require you to use a spiralizer to create perfect, twirlable strands — after a quick roasting time, a fork is all that’s needed. Follow Food Network Magazine’s foolproof roasting guide here. Then, create a comforting low-carb dinner featuring the yellow gourd. Find delicious inspiration from the October issue below.

You won’t miss the pasta when your squash strands are dressed up with Alfredo sauce. Shallots, white wine and fresh thyme balance the creaminess of the classically decadent dish.
