I really enjoy the taste of mac & cheese. I have very rarely eaten it in the last 3 years. I never ever make it anymore. I do miss it. I have been on the hunt for a healthier version. Personally I don’t eat pasta at all. I love spaghetti squash and have eaten it many different ways. After reading a bunch of different recipes online this is what I came up with.
I assembled all the ingredients and got ready to cook but my spaghetti squash wasn’t big enough. I needed 6 cups but it only yielded about 4. Oops! I had to improvise. The only thing I had on hand was a bag of kelp noodles which I added to the squash to make it 6 cups. It worked out ok but the two textures didn’t mix perfectly. However the flavor was still delightful! It would have been better with just the squash as originally intended. In a bind the kelp noodles can be used. I am going to try a future version with just kelp noodles to see what it is like.

I serve it as the main dish, however if you serve it as a side dish you may get about 6 servings out of this recipe.
