Ok, those of you that know me...know that I love spaghetti. I could eat spaghetti or pasta every night of the week - if my family would let me. I even eat it cold out of the fridge the next day (so good). But we all need a little variety in our lives and we need to focus on eating healthy. Eating healthy doesn't have to be bland or boring. Living in South Carolina, we are fortunate to have great farm fresh veggies and I use them alone or in pasta all the time. So cutting, chopping and sauteing is pretty much an every night occurrence of some kind in our house.
I have a new favorite veggie that I want to share with you. It's not new exactly, but it is a veggie that gets over looked often. It's that big orange-ish, yellow looking thing you see in the grocery store and just keep on walking past it. Or you look at it and think...not. It's spaghetti squash!
So next time you are at the grocery store, buy a big old spaghetti squash, cut it in half and throw it in the oven. It cooks all by itself and when it's done, you can go from squash to plates in about 15 min.
Let me know what you think!
Happy and Healthy Wednesday.
