Did You know????

Surprisingly, I am finding out that a lot people are not aware of what Spaghetti Squash is.  A few weeks back one of my Tasty Tuesday post was a Noodle Free Spaghetti and Sauce.  I had made Spaghetti squash as the food to replace the noodles I would have normally had.

Spaghetti Squash is a winter squash that you bake and after it is done cooking the inside of the squash you can use a fork and scrape out the inside of the squash.  The inside of the squash ends up coming out as strands like spaghetti that you can use as a side dish or as a replacement to pasta.

It is quite easy to cook as well.  All you need to do is cut the product lengthwise in half and scrape out the seeds that are inside of the product.  I then put it in a baking dish with the skin side up for about 30-40 minutes at 375*.

If this seems like too much work for you there are so many other ways you can cook it  Check out here.

The next time you are in the grocery store and you see this item.  You will now know what it is and how to cook it.
