I did it.
After years of promises (to myself) – I did it.
I made spaghetti squarsh.
Now, I realize that for some of you this is lame . NBD. Been there done that.
But for me – this is a success story.
All jokes aside, it was a success and everyone at my table enjoyed it! High in fiber, antioxidants and other big vitamins & still comforting (and filling) like your favorite pasta. I baked mine and enjoyed making a sauce, a salad and some comfort bread while it was in the oven. It didn’t take a lot of time and it felt good to slow down and warm up the house a bit during this busy time.
Comfort Italian night – never felt so good.
1 spaghetti squarsh (I got a big ol organic one and it was quite affordable)
salt and pepper
marinara sauce (DIY or out of the jar)
What to do:
Preheat oven to 450°
Chop your squarsh in half (be careful)
Scoop out the seeds and guts with a spoon
Drizzle a bit of oil on your squash
Add a little salt and pepper
Place face down in baking dish
Bake for 40 min or until squash is nice and soft
Once soft, take a fork to it. Be careful, it will be hot.
Stroke your squash with the fork – creating your noodles and place in a bowl.
Toss noodles in sauce or spoon your marinara on top. Yogi’s choice.
Enjoy with a crisp and leafy salad!
Add fresh parmesan if you like!
Serve with fresh basil & bread for added comfort.
Always cook with love and good vibes. I swear you can taste it.
