Today I tried spaghetti squash for the first time. It has a fraction of the calories of spaghetti and was a great 'mock' pasta dish. I'd definitely have it again on its own or as a vegetable side dish. It'd go fabulous with chicken parmigiana, I think.
I made it primavera style and while it didn't taste like spaghetti it was pretty awesome. It had the texture of cooked shredded potatoes and a really nice flavour. Here's how I made it:
Spaghetti Squash Primavera
-1 spaghetti squash: microwave 8-12 minutes. Pierce with a fork several times and put in a dish with 1/4 cup of water. Turn spaghetti squash over half way during cooking.
-Halve the squash and separate the strands from the seeds
Meanwhile, in a frying pan sautee some slices of zucchini, pepper, and sundried tomato in oil.
Add spaghetti squash and a touch each of tomato sauce, spices, an ounce of shredded cheese, and stir fry for a few minutes.
