Low Carb Traditional Spaghetti Squash With Tomato Sauce

Traditional Spaghetti Squash With Tomato SauceThis is about as low carb as you can make Spaghetti Squash Sauce With Tomato Sauce. Tomatoes, if using enough to make a sauce, inherently have carbs and for that matter so does spaghetti squash.  I do not eat this often nor do I eat any more than one serving but it is so, so good.  One half order actually makes a very nice dinner side accompaniment. The sauce is also very good on Spaetzle.
