Few things give me joy the way Mexican foods do. And while my dishes are often far from authentic, I have fun playing around with the flavors that our Latin friends enjoy on a daily basis.

I’ve had to cut out pastas and bread from my eating plan because of my blood sugar. I simply do better on a low carb eating plan. But that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy pasta-like dishes! In fact, it’s been my experience that vegetable pastas offer even more amazing flavor to any dish you use them in. So I picked up a spaghetti squash at Trader Joe’s the other night and this is what became of it.
