Here's how I made my spaghetti squash pasta dish:
Start out with one whole spaghetti squash:
Preheate the oven to 350 and stick the whole squash in on a baking sheet:
I let the squash bake for a bit before cutting it, since it was WAY too hard at first :) so when it is partially baked, pull it out of the oven and slice it in half and put it back in the oven:
I put it in cut side up, but I think you can do it either way.
When the squash was getting close to done, I started to heat up a skillet with olive oil and some seasoning for the "pasta" fixins:
Tonight's was fresh green beans and chicken meatballs:
As those are cooking up, I took the spaghetti squash out and started shredding it!
I shredded both halves and got so much "pasta"!
For the sauce I used some fresh pesto from the refrigerated section at the store:
And did I mention the spaghetti squash was only 99 cents?! A lot of bang for your buck! We had lots of spaghetti squash left over.
What I also love about this meal is it can be done multiple ways, so look out for my recipes for leftovers!
