Pasta alternative: Spaghetti Squash

13 Jun

So I decided to try something new (as always,yea what’s new lol). I made pasta using spaghetti squash. I didn’t miss the pasta at all! Here’s how I did it:



Took one spaghetti squash and carefully cut it in half. Then scooped out the seeds on the inside.


Then I put the halves face down in a baking pan with about an inch of water and baked in the oven on 350 for about 45 minutes.


After it was done. I took it out the oven and used a fork scraping long ways inside the squash. It easily forms spaghetti!

Until you have this! Then from here you can make your own pasta dish.

I made shrimp pasta with tomato sauce egg plant low fat Parmesan cheese and other seasonings. It turned out amazing! Made great leftovers! One squash goes a long way!

    I love spaghetti squash!! I just used it yesterday to make a veggie stir fry and it worked well. Haven’t made the spinach bake in awhile but since I’ve given up dairy, it will be another long while until I find a cheese alternative. 😦
