Spaghetti squash is a great alternative for replacing pasta. At first I mixed it half pasta, half spaghetti squash so my kids could get used to it. It took them a couple of times before they really enjoyed it.The Walden day care has an awesome farmers market every Thursday, the staff there are always helpful and they make samples so people can try an unusual fruit or vegetable. That’s wear I first discovered romanesco cauliflower, that’s the alien broccoli picture I have on my title. Yesterday they were sampling Roasted spaghetti squash and I thought that was pretty cool because I was sending out this post today.
You need the biggest sharpest knife you own because it’s very hard. Little squash are easier.
Wash and cut length wise, scoop out the seeds and rub coconut oil in it. Sprinkle with salt and pepper or any other spices you like. This time I tried garlicky dill topper by Epicure.
Preheat oven to 375 and roast for 30 to 40 minutes. Cook both halves upside down. It’s ready when it’s soft and you can scrape it out easily.
So if you’ve decided to replace pasta, just top it with your regular pasta sauce, or have it as a side dish as one of your veggies. Enjoy.
