That’s some tasty s’ghetti squash

Oh. my. god!

Earlier this week a buddy of mine at work (Ray) brought in some spaghetti squash him and his wife made for dinner -- I was shocked that the squash didnt taste like absolute crap poop -- not a big fan of squash.

I decided I wanted to try making some, so he sent me the recipe and heres my rendition. Give it a whirl, its good.

Recipe: Spaghetti Squash Veggie Disco Dance

Nutritional facts (estimated): ~190 calories, 12g fat, 22g cholesterol

Here's your tasty parts you'll need:

  • 1 s'ghetti squash
  • 1 onion minced
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 large tomato chopped
  • Some chopped up shroomies
  • Some black olives cut in half
  • Your fav crumbled cheese (I went with bluecheese cuz it puts hair on my chest)
  • Some fresh basil if ya got it, dried otherwise
  • Chopped up bell peppers (your choice)
  • Some of your fav tasty powder (seasonings, duh) -- I used Tony Chacheres original creole
  • Some sausage or ground beef
  • Some veggie oil (for the veggiesssssss)

Heres how to twirk those tasty parts:

  • Cut s'ghetti squash down the middle length wise

  • Grease bakin pan, put cut sides down after cleaning and bake for ~30mins at 350 degrees (until you can stick a knife in without too much resistance
  • Meanwhile, get on with choppin your veggies up starting with onion
  • Cook chopped onion in oil over medium until its soft
  • While onion cooks, chop up all your veggies you decided to incorporate into your tasty medly

  • Toss all veggies in but tomato, basil, and cheese
  • Once all veggies have softened, add in tomatos and season to taste and set aside

  • Soon your s'ghetti squash will finish, so take out of oven when done
  • Let cool, once its cool enough to handle, scrape insides out into a bowl or container (get it all! clean'er out!)

  • Once gutted all s'ghetti, toss into veggies and mix well
    • This is the point I for some reason forgot to take more pictures :\
  • Add in your cheese, olives, pre-cooked meat, and basil

  • Check seasonin again, and dig in!
Of course, I had to grab the biggest "crumble" of blue cheese and show you how excited I was to eat it .... mmmm

  • At this point, since I not only forgot to take pictures of final product, I also forgot to cook the turkey sausage I bought and incorporate in. My remedy? I cooked it after, duh. I'll serve on side and slice up and just mix in... but still, heres pics, cuz you love pics. I know you do. Hell, I dont care if you dont, I LOVE PICS, and this is my blog.

Update: I took a picture with my iPhone at work during lunch of the finished meal -- here ya go!
