Tahini Spaghetti Squash and Cheez Bake {gf, v}

Updated: Mar 15, 2021

Yes, you heard that right- the tahini mac game just got a major upgrade. This spaghetti squash and cheez bake follows the same recipe as my tahini mac, but with a low-carb alternative to elbows or shells. The recipe is still entirely vegan, and is loaded with yummy goodness. For some greens and texture, I added some brussel sprouts and broccoli. This is such a fun way to enjoy "mac and cheese," and it's super easy to make; all you need it some time on your hands!
