I’ve reached the point where I want to live more, love move, travel more, be more…
You’ve got to stop and ask yourself when was the best time of your life – and why can’t it be now? This is a simple recipe, sure, but it’s a great step in the right direction to try something new, eat something that isn’t horrible for your health and inspire you to try new things. Remember… Happiness is Homemade!
Start with a spaghetti squash and end up with a pasta-free spaghetti that’s unforgettable!
Yield: 4 servings
|1 Spaghetti Squash|
|2 tablespoons olive oil|
|Salt and Pepper|
|About 2 cups Pasta Sauce (I strongly recommend Arrabiata Pasta Sauce made by World Classics Trading Company)|
*Caution: The squash is challenging to cut. It took a shun knife and a tactful husband…*
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Split the squash in half (length-wise) and scrape out seeds. Line an oven tray with aluminum foil. Season the spaghetti squash with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Using a lined cookie sheet, place flesh side down and roast for 30 to 40 minutes until fully cooked (squash is soft). Remove from the oven and let rest until cool enough to handle.
Meanwhile heat the marinara sauce in a large saute pan.
When squash is cool enough to handle, using a large kitchen spoon scrape the strands of squash from the inside of the skin. Toss the spaghetti squash in the pan with the hot marinara for just long enough to get hot. Serve and enjoy! (recipe from Food Network)
