Gather your ingredients. You will need gluten free spaghetti noodles, broccoli florets, carrots, cream cheese, milk, Parmesan cheese, butter, and garlic powder. Cook the spaghetti according to package directions.
In a bowl add fresh vegetables with a few tablespoons water. You can use whatever vegetables you love. Broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, asparagus, whatever sounds good! Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 3 minutes or until tender. You can use frozen vegetables if you desire, but the fresh vegetables taste better. Set aside.
