This is an adaptation of an old Weight Watcher's recipe. I learned to use spaghetti squash from them. This was long before the "points" thing with WW so I have no idea of points on this but with the addition of avocado I am sure it is high. NOTE: Once avocado is sliced you should pour dresing over it as soon as possible or it will turn black.
