Sphaghetti Squash

I wish I would have discovered this amazing produce called Spaghetti squash a lot sooner in my life! I had no clue what this was in the grocery stores and kept overlooking it every time. One day I wanted to try a different recipe. I looked up how to make a healthier version of spaghetti and came across using spaghetti squash instead of noodles. I was very hesitant to try this. I didn`t know if I even liked it.
I bought it at the store and didn`t know how much of the "noodles" each squash would make. Needless to say, I bought multiple to play it safe.
The hardest part was cutting the squash in half. I was glad I didn`t cut a finger off. I cut it length ways, scooped the seeds out with a spoon and disposed of them. I didn`t understand how the noodles would be created. It looked like a normal squash to me. But, I went ahead with this experiment.
I then placed them faced down in a dish. Added a little water at the bottom and baked them for about 35-45 minutes. When I took them out of the oven I still did not understand how I would get noodles out of this. I took a fork like I read and then viola! Noodles just magically came out of the squash. No pressure needed. Just slide the fork into the squash and there it is.
But now the taste test. I used my normal meat sauce that I would normally use on regular spaghetti. I topped it with a little green onion, red pepper flakes and parmesan cheese. Yes, it was not the exact same as real noodles but it was honestly really good! I got to eat all the spaghetti I wanted without the guilt. I am not addicted to making spaghetti squash noodles. Oh, and if you are wondering...one squash is definitely enough to feed a few people. It creates a lot more noodles than it looks.
Picture is my own.
