Spaghetti, but lighten it up by sneaking in some veggies and make it TEX-MEX! I’m a pasta-lover, but don’t always want the heavy feeling pasta gives you after chowing down. So my idea for this recipe was to remove half the pasta and replace it with some spaghetti squash! You barely even taste the difference. Let’s get cooking!
