Here's the perfect recipe for a cold summer day, if we get one. Finding the squash could be tricky, so you could always save this as something to look forward to later in the fall.
When I have a new ingredient I'm cooking with for the first time, in this case spaghetti squash, I usually perform a Google recipe search for it. This was result #3: Emeril's Herbed Spaghetti Squash. It looked so easy! BAM - I was down for it.
|medium-sized spaghetti squash seasoned with salt and pepper, cut in half and roasted for an hour; scrape out the inside flesh with a fork.|
|scraping out the flesh with a fork|
|spooning out the scraped flesh (sounds yummy, huh?)|
|scraped flesh in a bowl (delish!)|
|fresh basil and a hunk of butter, ready to be added to a large frying pan|
|add the squash to the melted butter and chopped fresh basil (or other fresh herb of your choice) and saute|
|once everything is adequately combined over medium heat, serve (and eat!) immediately|
BAM! A delicious bowl of spaghetti squash! Feel free to top with fresh, grated Parmesan or Romano cheese - I did.
