Spaghetti Sauce - Squash Spaghetti - YUM!



Happy PINK Saturday! Today I'm joining in on Beverly from HowSweetTheSound as she hosts all the PINKness for this day. Be sure to visit her for more PINKs...

Do you cook Spaghetti Squash? in place of pasta? I love it but don't make it often enough.

This week I prepared an easy peesy spaghetti for dinner. I opened up a couple of jars of my favourite spaghetti sauces. One has spinach in it and the other has cheese and portichini mushrooms. I made meatballs mixing in parmesan cheese, egg, bread crumbs, bit of milk and some spices, rolled them into little meatballs and browned them as normal. They cooked in that delicious sauce for about 1/2 hour.



Meanwhile I sliced the spaghetti squash lengthwise, removed the seeds and microwaved the halves until soft and cooked.


NOW comes the first of the PINK... in my dinner plate. I have 3 sizes of them and they are made in Italy....purchased "thriftstyle" years ago.




Now 0nce the meatballs and spaghetti sauce have mellowed together..*s*... and the squash is cooked...use a fork and scrape it down lightly lengthwise and you'll have squash spaghetti from the spaghetti squash!


Sscoop yummy sauce and meatballs into your squash spaghetti bowl and enjoy. It truly is VERY yummy...mmmmmm... One 1/2 is a good size per person. More PINK on the rim of the plate.



Do you eat spaghetti squash this way? Another way?

Hope you have something especially yummy for PINK Saturday dinner.. Judi xoxo

I worked for Weight Watchers (many pounds ago!) and that recipe is called, "Weight Watchers Spaghetti."

I have never tried Spaghetti squash. It sure looks good and sounds good. I could actually eat everything in the recipe. I can't eat grains so I really miss spaghetti. I do cheat some times but pay the price. Thanks so much for posting this. I will give it a try. Hope we have them in our area. Ha We are working at mother's house today. I hope she lets us clean the frig. I know she will let us trim bushes but she likes her frig full. Even if the foods are expired. Enjoy your weekend.
