Doesn't this look good? This was our dinner tonight... or some of ours. I wanted to use the meat sauce I had in the freezer from a few weeks ago. (I know what you're thinking...didn't they have sauce last week?) I was determined that we were having spaghetti this week because last week I bought a spaghetti squash and didn't use it. $9.43 worth of spaghetti squash!!! So, tonight I made "real" spaghetti for the kids and the adults had spaghetti squash(that's it, in the above picture). It was so delicious! I really didn't miss the pasta at all! I am feeling quite virtuous, in fact. :) The kids were adamant that they weren't eating it, but I think next time I will try it for everyone. If you are wondering how I made the squash... I put the whole thing in the oven at 375 for almost an hour. Then I took it out, scooped out the seeds and took a fork to it, scraping out the squash, which comes out in strands just like spaghetti. My only complaint.... it made a ton($9.43 gets you a lot of squash!) If you're on a health kick, give it a try...it makes a great pasta substitute.
Speaking of health kick, we have one slight problem here: I just bought an ice cream maker. Stay tuned for tomorrow night's indulgence!
