Do You Spaghetti Squash? Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs, Spaghetti Squash Hashbrowns

Do you Spaghetti Squash?  Well we sure do here, now...... And.....I will be planting some of these bad boys in the garden this summer.

All the Paleo Diets are using Spaghetti Squash.  I wanted to try it as a healthy alternative to spaghetti.  I love spaghetti and always over eat it.

Imagine my surprise when I stopped by my local Whole Foods, and they had 3 left.  So I bought 2 not knowing how far they would go.  Well they went far and we had leftovers, FYI I would still buy 2 for the leftovers alone.

Below, Spaghetti Squash and Trader Joe Mini Meatballs, in Trader Joe's Three Cheese Sauce.

Below the cooked spaghetti squaush.

Wash, cut length wise, and baked in a 350 degree oven, cut side down, with 1/2 cup of water.  It was a litte watery.  Next time, I am going to try baking face up.   Anyway bake then shred.  It just shreds like spaghetti.  I saw one blogger who, did a bit of shredding, then served everything in the squash.  Genius.
 
 
So, as to the leftovers, it was a weekend and I made spaghetti squash hasbrowns.  I just treated them like shredded potatoes, added butter, salt, pepper, Mrs. Dash, and fried in a pan until slightly crispy and done.  Then served with eggs and a tortilla.  Yep, they make a killer breakfast burrito.  Wish I had pics.
 
So, if you haven't tried spaghetti squash yet, give it a try this weekend.
 
And......like I always say, I can't cook, but....I can prepare.
