I’m not a fan of squash – Idk what is is, I just don’t like it. However, spaghetti squash is so fun that I can eat it! 🙂 I sliced my squash in ½ and removed the seeds. Then I drizzed olive oil on both sides & sprinkled salt & pepper on top.
I preheated my oven to 375 and baked the squash for 35 minutes. I baked it with the cut side down on the cookie sheet. Once it’s baked the inside will turn right to spaghetti as soon as you put a fork to it!
I use a fork to scrape out the insides of both and now it’s ready for your sauce!!
For my sauce I added tomatoes, pickled garlic cloves, sweet onion, and mushrooms to a 9×13 pan. I then drizzled on olive oil, red wine vinegar, and balsamic vinaigrette. I sprinkled italian seasoning & parsley on top. I gave it a good stir & baked it in the oven on 350 for 35 minutes with the spaghetti squash.
I wish I could share with you how yummy this made my house smell!!!!! I cooked up some mussels to have along with the spaghetti squash. I always buy mussels in the freezer section at my local giant that are preseasoned/buttered & ready to just be thrown into a pot & cooked for 6 minutes. I have tried making mussels at home a time or two, but I haven’t been happy with the mussels from my local stores. To be honest, the mussels from the freezer section are AMAZING anyway, so why would I make my own?? 😉
I poured my roasted tomatoes & all of the other goodies in that pan into a blender.
and I blended until they were nice and creamy.
Of course, I topped the tomato sauce with parmesan cheese! 🙂
