Hello Friends!

Breakfast is definitely my favorite meal of the day! I typically make a kale and onion frittata, but pasta? I saw a non-paleo version of this dish and just had to try it the paleo way with spaghetti squash. Oh my goodness, it’s amazing! You get a nice portion of vegetables and all the flavors (especially when the egg yolk is broken) blend beautifully together. When fresh new flavors are combined they tantalize your taste buds and this dish does just that! I highly recommend “squashta” for breakfast!
