Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Parmesan and Romano

via

Spaghetti Squash is one of those mystery produce pieces that we know in our minds is produce, but mimics pasta in so many ways.

“When raw, the flesh is solid and similar to other raw squash; when cooked, the flesh falls away from the fruit in ribbons or strands like spaghetti”

Thus the name.

It’s incredibly healthy for you, plus there are so many ways to eat this that I dare you to give it a try if you haven’t.

In fact, just yesterday my friend, Amy, asked on instagram what ar favorite ways of eating Spaghetti Squash. Since I had this post in a draft. I thought I would share some ideas, as well as my recipe.

  •  Olive Oil, Sun Dried Tomatoes, Roasted Pine Nuts and Parmesan (and broccoli too).
  • Lemon Capers, Parm and Red Peppers
  • A super kid friendly version: Olive Oil, Scrambled Eggs, Bacon and Parm. (Poor Nan’s Carbona)
  • Homemade Basil Pesto, Diced Tomatoes, and Parm
  • Homemade Spaghetti Sauce and fresh Parm
  • Minced Garlic, onions, diced Tomatoes and butter

This just might be a new, favorite veggie (even though categorically, it’s in the fruit family. ;))

I dare you! ‘

Give it a try and share with us all the ways you have fallen in love with Spaghetti Squash.

And if it’s this time of year when you’re wondering what to do with all your Zucchini and Squash, run to this recipe for my delicious Squash Casserole. I even have Paula Dean’s extra cheese and butter variety that will have even the squash snobs loving this veggie.
