FOOD / 2

Pin It Now!

My new favorite thing to eat is Spaghetti Squash.
1. It is so frickin cool! Sorry, but all the other veggies need to step up their 
it factors. Just saying
2. Its like "zero calories, carbs, and fat! (40cal. 8g carbs p/s)
3. It taste just like angel hair pasta. 
Plus the health, minus the whack of from the sleep stick an hour later.
So extra servings are alright here!

So I figured I'd introduce you all to it, 
if you don't know about it already.

 I don't even like to count this as cooking because it is so easy. 

Just Remember:
1.Slice it- in half
2. Gut it- remove all the seeds and strings
3. Bake it- face down in a 1/4 cup of water at 350 degrees for 45 minutes
(a glass casserole dish is what I used)
4. Rake it- using a fork or a pasta spoon 
(the pasta spoon was much easier while handling the hot squash
and you can get more of the squash out, as opposed to using a fork)

Note: I gave my squash a massage of pepper, salt, and olive oil.
This allowed it to marinate as opposed to having to season it after
it was cooked. 

Meat Sauce:
1lb of Ground Chicken (use whatever meat you like)
1Tbsp of Ground Black Pepper
1Tbsp of Ground Sea Salt
1Tbsp of Italian Seasoning blend (farmer's market)
1 Tsp of Basil
1Tsp of Roasted Red Peppers (optional)

Mix all of your spices with the meat and pan sear until 
thoroughly cooked. 
Add your tomato base and season to taste. 
 Serve over your spaghetti squash
Et Voila!!!  Your done!

Hope this helps with your menu this week. 
Bon Appetit!
