Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Evening! I have made this probably more than 100 times. I know that sounds like a bit of an exaggeration, but I promise you I am telling you the truth. As a vegan/vegetarian, this was an easy and filling meal. The girls tried it for the first time tonight. I had to stop Becca from licking her plate. Katie wasn’t a fan…

The flesh of this squash resembles spaghetti when cooked. It is just like magic. You can add sauce to it, add it with cheese, or simply eat it with salt and pepper. Heaven!

Heat the oven to 400°F. Cut the squash in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Brush with 2 tablespoons of the oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the squash halves cut-side up on a baking sheet and roast until fork tender, about 50 minutes.

Remove the squash from the oven and let sit at room temperature until cool enough to handle. Scrape the flesh with a fork to make long strands, or just eat it strait from the skin.

I ate half with butter and parm cheese.

I spied a leftover garlic butter sauce from pizza last night. I added that and some parm cheese to the other half. I am saving that for another meal this week =)
