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.
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.
