What the hell is Spaghetti Squash ?


Standing in front of the sign above, I felt like a kid in the candy store. Two pounds of squash for a $1! My rule of only purchasing what I can eat this week went right out the window. I loaded my basket with butternut, acorn, and spaghetti squash. I was tempted to pick up a pumpkin; but hey, I had some restraint. Well… okay, I really had to get potatoes and onions and no way could I carry it all alone. Returning home I placed everything in my pantry minus the spaghetti squash. This food was a first for me, making it culinary challenge. I quickly did a Google search I found this great site with endless recipes. I went with number 18 -Baked Spaghetti Squash with Garlic and Butter  (have you tried any of these dishes? I was really tempted to make number two and three), but my philosophy is if I am going to try something new I want to enjoy it in its purest form to see if I really like it. I have to say I like it, although it’s not as quick as traditional spaghetti.
