Super Scrumptious Saturday: spaghetti squash!

I'm going to preface this by apologizing to Anna for taking her day :/ If you are reading this and haven't read her post, do it! Its hysterical,

So I've never really understood or attempted to make spaghetti squash, and the other day I decided that I wanted to start making baby food and grabbed a few veggies... before I knew it, I was google-ing "Baby food Spaghetti squash" and GUESS WHAT? Its basically the only veggie you AREN'T supposed to puree and give to babies. So, I decided to make it for myself, since I had already bought it and everything. 

You bake the whole thing on a pan in the oven at 375' for 50-60 minutes, then let it cool for a bit and slice it in half. Scoop out the seeds (kinda like a pumpkin) and with two forks start scraping out the insides and would you believe it?! It comes out looking just like angel hair pasta. So I just added some cheese and sprinkled a bit of salt and basil and viola! A yummy, healthy lunch. It even pairs well with tomato basil soup.... nom nom good. Told you it looks just like real spaghetti!! 


  1. Sgetti Skwash is the best veggie ever invented. It was definitely a staple in my childhood. Why can't babies eat it?
