A few simple ingredients transform this mild tasting vegetable into a memorable side dish. My whole family loves this, even kids and at only 2 grams of carbs per serving it is a great dish to beat back the pasta craving! It tastes alot like spaghetti alfredo. I usually serve this with grilled chicken. My girlfriend passed this recipe on to me, I have no idea where it came from. If you are watching carbs it has a net carb count of only 2 grams per serving. For those doing Atkins, use the heavy cream, for those on SBD use milk and add a wee bit of thickener if needed.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Delicious squash combined with nutty rice and tangy goat cheese is a healthy delight, providing a hefty dose of fiber, vitamins A and C, and a little calcium. Serve whole or cut into wedges. This is from Delicious Living magazine, which I get from my health food store. Any good winter squash can be used.
This is a healthy, quick and easy dish. At least once you split the spaghetti squash in half. The rosemary, sage and thyme makes this side a nice, grounding and comforting veggie. Also the sweet sauteed onions and garlic lends it lots of flavor topped with grated parmesan cheese. Servings are either a side or meal. Once you taste it you will continue on to make a meal out of it.
I made this for my husband a few nights ago on a whim and he really seemed to like it. The fruit juice gives the squash a richer flavor. Serve it with more produce mixed into the strands for a different flavor (I like pomegranite seeds or green peas).
How sweet it is!!! The original recipe in a community cookbook specifies 400F and I haven't had any problems - but I need a new stove; however, I've decreased the temperature to 350F based on the comments & suggestions from Zaar chefs.
This recipe makes a veggie rich, cheesy casserole, almost like a lasagna. Spaghetti Squash subsitutes for the role traditionally taken by pasta in such dishes for a delicious, lower calorie alternative.
A friend phoned me this evening, asking how to do squash (she hasn't been cooking at home for long; she's always been a takeout kind of gal). So, here is the method I use, for everyone who wondered how but were afraid to ask. Go for it -- it's easy and delicious!
I am giving you a choice of three toppings they are all good.There are two different toppings in the picture Bacon Maple syrup and Browned Butter Sage. I just finished enjoying a butternut squash with GINGER marmalade &Chili flakes. 3 Tbsp Ginger marmalade, 1/2 tsp chili flakes, mix together and spoon into squash cavity - I really liked this one
There are so many ways to serve this wonderful veggie. I use it in place of pasta. You can experiment with different sauces and herbs to create a great tasting dish. Try it with Alfredo sauce, or add some pesto and butter or your favorite herbs.
