Spaghetti Squash & My Sauce
Preheat the oven to 350°
If you crave pasta but want to try something a little different, I highly recommend giving spaghetti squash a try!
For my husband and I, (1) squash will usually hit the mark for dinner! Carefully cut the squash in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds and loose stringy “flesh”. In a roasting pan with 2 cups of water and the halves cut side up. Place in a preheated oven for 30 minutes. To test if the squash is ready, you should be able to push a fork through it effortlessly! If it doesn’t go through easy, allow to cook for an additional 5 minutes.
We usually like to top it with our homemade sauce. (Olive oil, tons of fresh garlic (8 cloves), fresh basil (20 fresh leaves) crushed tomatoes (2 cans), salt, black pepper to taste, and 2 teas of fine onion powder, 1 TBS dried parsley, and 1-2 bay leaves.
Allow to come to a boil. Lower and allow to steam for 2 or more hours for the BEST SAUCE!
