Spaghetti Squash with Pesto and Beluga Lentils

This meal was the first time that I’ve had spaghetti squash and it definitely won’t be the last. It is a great alternative to pasta which can be so heavy. Michael didn’t love the squash but he said that it wasn’t horrible because of the pesto. I decided that I would use my pesto instead of the parsley pesto that the original recipe called for.

The one part of the meal that was surprisingly good were the lentils. I had never had beluga lentils before but they are really good. They are a bit firmer and a little stronger in flavor than other lentils. However, I felt they added a nice flavor and texture to what could have been an otherwise boring meal.
