From the Test Kitchen

Brewer’s yeast, a key component in brewing beer, is believed to help prevent the common cold and alleviate other ailments. While you can simply sprinkle it on dishes as a seasoning, we love the slightly tangy flavor it adds to sauces. As you scrape and twirl the spaghetti-like squash threads onto your fork, don’t forget to dip them in the sauce—you might just be able to say good-bye to that runny nose.
