Would you believe that this is not spaghetti ??. Well, it isn't. It is spaghetti squash. It is a vegetable which when prepared tastes and looks like its pasta counterpart. Great for vegetarians and it is a novel and fun way to feed children their vegetables. Here is the easy recipe.
1 spaghetti squash cut in half and seeded. Turn fleshy side down on a oven tray lined with aluminium foil and brush the rind with olive oil. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes (depending on your oven). Wait until cool to touch then with a fork gently scrape away the flesh from its rind on to a platter. Put a ladle full (or more) pasta sauce on top, grate your favorite cheese. You'll receive kudos from your family and friends with this surprise dish. ENJOY.
