One of the new items I discovered Spaghetti squash. I thought that it would be a substitute for the real thing. It isn’t! It can be treated in a similar manner and is great as a side for dishes with a lot of gravy. It stands up by itself very well. Unlike acorn or butternut squash it is low in carbohydrates. But meatballs and spaghetti squash is one of my great failures.
I prepare this hours ahead and even the day before
Preheat oven to 350
1 2-2 ½ pound spaghetti squash
Salt and pepper to taste
2-3 Tbsp. butter, softened
Parmesan cheese to taste
How to prepare this recipe:
Cut squash in half lengthwise. I USE A CLEAVERANDHAMMER to cut through the hard shell of the squash. Scrape out the seeds and pith. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place cut side down on a baking sheet lined with foil and sprayed with Pam. Bake for 30 minutes.
Let cool for ½ hour.
Using a fork, scrape the meat of the squash into a bowl. Stir in softened butter, and parmesan cheese.
