Roasted Spaghetti Squash Seeds - 2 points

I made this yummy treat when I cooked spaghetti squash for Valentine's Day. I have never braved seed roasting before and was almost afraid to try a bite when they came out of the oven. I should have had no fear! They are a lovely, nutty treat - great to add crunch to a salad or wrap. I also loved the feeling I got from using almost every part of my squash; I felt like Laura Ingalls Wilder!

I have two spaghetti squash in the oven as I type; spaghetti squash kugel is on the menu for this week. It is one of my favorite healthy dishes!
