Ahhhhh another Thursday night save by the spaghetti squash.
Isn’t the spaghetti squash is just a gem of a vegetable? Well then again, i haven’t met a squash i didn’t instantly love. If I recall, I discovered it not long after Mr. B and I got married and it has been a staple in our diets ever since. I think I make an effort to pick one up about every other month or so.
So easy! I mean I’m talking reallllyyyyy easy. Slice it in half, remove a few seeds, pop it in the microwave about 5-10 minutes. After it’s heated, take a fork and scrape the insides of the squash as it falls out like spaghetti. The rest is totally up to you. Red sauce, carbonara, olive oil and spices….endless possibilities and all within a flash. Tonight I added organic ground chicken, fresh baby spinach leaves, fresh basil leaves and some Paul Newmans organic marinara, topped with shredded mozzarella cheese.
It gets better…..check out the nutrition vs. regular pasta here. Thank me later!
