With everyone gearing up for holiday meals to share with one another, we love finding recipes that put a fun spin on classic dishes that you can make to seriously wow your friends and family. Just like this crazy tasty spinach and spaghetti squash dip.

Yes, you heard right. This dish is a mash up of a well-loved appetizer with a nutrient dense veggie that is now in season. By mixing spinach dip with a little spaghetti squash, you create a dish that is not only delightfully delicious but also nutrient packed to help you survive all of the holiday sweets. It’s the best of both worlds! This dish is still a little decadent (hello, cheese!), but at least you can feel a bit better about treating yourself to a creamy, cheesy dip. After all, it is the holidays!
