Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti Squash!
Don't be intimidated!
It's soooooooo easy!
Spaghetti Squash
Sweet onion, sliced into thin strips
Bacon, 2 pieces, chopped
Salt and Pepper

Wrap Spaghetti Squash in foil (No! I don't pierce the skin)
and bake at 300 for one to one and half hours.
Remove from oven.  Unwrap.  Let it cool.

While the squash is cooling, saute onion and bacon til lightly caramelized.
While this is cooking over low heat,

Slice the squash in half.  Scoop out the seeds.  (See bottom of page re: seeds)
Using a fork, lightly "fork" the spaghetti-like strands away from the walls of the squash.

Toss with onion and bacon and season to taste.

That's all there is too it!

Don't be silly!  Of course I used an iron skillet!

The sky's the limit with spaghetti squash! 
I've had it with marinara sauce and it's great!
It's great tossed with parmesan/romano cheese!
Go ahead!  Google it and see what combinations you come up with!
We're having it with low-and-slow grilled chicken!

While I haven't ever toasted the seeds from a spaghetti squash,
there's a first time for everything!  Here is a link which shows us both how!

Roasted Spaghetti Squash Seeds


One Week later:  Yes!  I found some leftover spaghetti squash in the fridge!
Warmed it.  Added a little chicken stock and an itty bitty bit of buttah!
Pureed it smooth with my immersion blender.  Added a couple tablespoons of heavy cream.
Heated thru.  Ladled into bowl. Drizzled with olive oil. Sprinkled with parm/romano!
Bon Appetit, Y'all!
