Have you tried Spaghetti Squash (SS)?!?! You don't have to be a vegetarian...or LOVE veggies to love this! I can't remember when I discovered SS (I think it was when I did the South Beach Diet....does that sound right?!?!). Anyway, if you decide you want to give it a go, pick one up at the grocery store (if you are unsure if it IS in fact a spaghetti squash, look at the sticker...there is usually a sticker on the squash). Cut in half (as shown) and put in about 3/4" of water (I add olive oil, garlic powder with lavender and pepper) and bake for about 25 minutes at 350 (of course this will depend on the size of your squash and if you like your squash al dente or soft).
When the time is up, remove form the stove and allow to cool about 5 minutes....then take your fork and rake from side to side....
and then you will have SPAGHETTI SQUASH
Add your favorite "homemade" sauce (I prefer Classico Italian Sausage and Peppers) and some Ciabatta Garlic bread and VIOLÁ.....
Ok, now that we have covered healthy, lets talk about not so healthy....any guesses what THIS is?
and just in case you wondered....Wendy's now has Chili cheese fries - YUM-O
Ciao ~or~ CHOW! Have a great weekend!
