A fun alternative to pasta is Spaghetti Squash. It is a winter squash, so is available about September. If you’ve never tried it – it’s really delicious, and a fun way to give your family a spaghetti dinner! The squash is hard to cut – be careful of your knife! I cut mine into four pieces then clean out the seeds, then steam in a pan of boiling water for 20 minutes.
When it’s done, cool it a bit then use a big spoon to scrape the “spaghetti” out of the skins. Serve with your favorite spaghetti sauce. Today I just browned a pound of ground beef, drained the liquid, then added a can of Hunts Spaghetti Sauce.
