This dish tastes just as comforting as the original, but without pasta’s calories and carbs. Though zucchini and squash are available year-round, any combination of fresh vegetables will work, so sub in your favorites.

  1. preheat oven to 425 ̊. Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and remove seeds with a spoon. place squash, cut side up, on a baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with salt and pepper. turn cut side down and roast for 25 minutes.
  2. meanwhile, heat remaining olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. add onion, zucchini, squash, bell pepper, and broccoli; sauté until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. add garlic and toss to combine. add tomatoes, crushing with a spoon. Season with red pepper flakes, oregano, thyme, and salt and pepper. Sauté for another 5 minutes or so.
  3. When squash is tender, use a fork to scrape into spaghetti-like strings. Divide among shallow bowls. Spoon primavera sauce over “noodles” and garnish with cheese. Serve immediately.
