Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti Squash is a totally different kind of squash but it can be very good. Tiffany and I enjoy it very much.

It is simple to cook. Take your spaghetti squash and remove any stickers that may be on it.

I tend to forget mine and they get a little overcooked on the bottom.

Or you can saute it with some other veggies of choice, onion, mushroom, and pepper for example. Or you could even put a tomato sauce and some cheese on it and put it in the oven to melt the cheese.

Yesterday morning I made some bacon for breakfast, so I had a pan of bacon grease sitting on the stove. So of course, I did the most healthy thing ever and I cooked my spaghetti squash in that bacon grease with some leftover spaghetti sauce I had in the refrigerator that needed to be used up and some cheese.

It was amazing! (Please disregard the grease in the following picture.)

I hope you give spaghetti squash, the other squash, a try.

Until next time, God bless,

PS. Please excuse the poor quality pictures. It was a very dreary day and the lighting in the house was very bad for pictures. I hope to update them the next time I make spaghetti squash.
