Hi everyone. I want to tell you about one of my proudest cooking moments. Yesterday, my niece Bailie who used to live with us, sent me an excited message on facebook. She wanted to tell me about an excellent recipe she had just made from Spaghetti Squash that turned out great. Watching Bailie as a healthy eating 21 year old warms my heart. I like to think that some of our homemade cooking/meals rubbed off on her :-).
Here is the recipe and we hope you like it. As you will see below in the video, we did not have much success with the kids but we will persevere! It was DELICIOUS!!!! Thank you, Bailie!
P.S. Here is a video which shows how to do it-it’s not me!http://www.womansday.com/Articles/Food/Tools-Tips/Kitchen-Bytes-Spaghetti-Squash.html
Bailie’s Spaghetti Squash With Pine Nuts And Parmesan:
2 cups shredded spaghetti squash
approx. 2 tsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
few grinds black pepper
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
2 TBS grated parmesan cheese
2 TBS toasted pine nuts
Slice the squash in 1/2 the long way and scrape out the strands of spaghetti with a fork. This will be a bicep workout but try to keep scraping until you get close to the shell. Set aside.
In a large skillet over low-med. heat, add oil. When the oil gets hot, add the minced garlic. Sautee it up and before it turns brown, add 2 cups of the spaghetti squash and sautee for a few minutes.
When squash is heated through, add black pepper,salt and stir.
Remove from skillet and top with crushed red pepper, toasted pine nuts and parmesan. Yum!
