Spaghetti Squash

Since  I have already attempted mastering the art of the butternut and acorn squash this Fall I figured, why stop there? Bring on the spaghetti squash! I am ready for it.


I love the pretty colors of all the squashes this season but I very much enjoyed the yellow color and football shape of this spaghetti squash.


Gorgeous, right?


The little nicks and imperfections of the squash even made it more appealing to me. I couldn’t wait to cook it!


I had questions about cooking spaghetti squash myself, but right when I needed it Heather posted on how to cook spaghetti squash. I followed her lead and it all turned out magically!


First I sliced this beautiful yellow squash down the middle. It was difficult at first, but I got it eventually.

This is what the inside of a spaghetti squash looks like.


Looks pretty much like all the other gourds I have sliced.


Speaking of gourds, if you are interested in a good laugh, check this out – and don’t be offended by the harsh language please. I found it extremely hilarious!


Back to dinner! I scooped out the guts of the squash with my melon baller (which I have used SO many times this season!) and then came the fun part!


I love spaghetti squash so much because it looks so freaking cool!


Slice your fork down the middle of it and WAM! you have spaghetti.



It just looks so lovely!


After some serious scooping to get out all that delicious squash you will end up with something like this.



I scooped all my spaghetti squash into a pot on the oven


Doesn’t it really look like spaghetti! I bet you could fool some people into thinking that’s what it is! 



Kinda looks like angel hair, right?


I paired the squash with this amazing vodka sauce which I had been saving from my Taste of the Nation experience in Philadelphia this past June.


Spaghetti squash + vodka sauce with a side of steamed broccoli and cauliflower and this was really a meal made in heaven.


The squash had an amazing little crunch to it, and the sauce made it taste even more amazing. I also liked it paired with these two other veggies, they were very complimentary to the flavors of the squash and sauce.


The best part about this was that it was a Fiancé approved meal. Some of the crazy things I make around here aren’t always his cup of tea, but I got his approval to make this again!

Now that’s when you know it was an amazing meal.


Fiancé approved. Doesn’t get much better than that!


Have you made anything fun with spaghetti squash lately?

    I have always looked at the spaghetti squashes in the store and wondered if I would be good at making it. I think I am going to try my first one on Sat night now and put it with a boca burger and pasta sauce! Thanks!
