Creamy Spinach

Creamy SpinachCreamy spinach and my secret ingredient… Spaghetti Squash! This side dish is so good and the texture of the spaghetti squash really adds to this recipe! Spaghetti squash is such a versatile food and EASY to prepare in the Slow Cooker!

If you still haven’t tried spaghetti squash, you seriously don’t know what you are missing! They are in season now here in Louisiana and I have been getting them pretty regularly from the farmer’s market. 

Check out THIS post about how to cook spaghetti squash in a slow cooker! You can also roast it in the oven but I like the slow cooker method.
