So sorry everyone for the extended absence. I was in the process of moving states and jobs so I did not have time to keep up with the website during so many changes happening. So as you could probably tell from one my last posts I discovered how incredible spaghetti squash is. As a girl who loves pasta finding a healthier alternative to actual pasta was something I was so excited about. I had never tried it before until a few months ago. I’m really glad I did expand my horizon and try it. Tonight I decided to use left over spaghetti squash I already had cooked to make something.
What I originally intended to make turned into something completely different on accident but I’m not upset about it because it ended up tasting really good. So the list of what I used is.
- Spaghetti Squash
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Red Pepper
- Basil spice
- Bay leaves spice
- Italian Seasoning
- Garlic Salt
- Plain tomato sauce
You want to start by cooking the veggies. Luckily there was some corn on the cob ready so I just took the cooked corn right off the cob to add it into the onion and pepper mix. To cook the onions and peppers I simply used some canola oil. I usually use Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) but I was out so I used the next option I had available. Then it’s time to get the chicken cooked and added into the mixture.
I also took the cherry tomatoes and cut them in halves and added them into the pot to cook down with everything else. Once that was all said and done I poured in the tomato sauce.
I had planned on this just being the topping to the spaghetti squash. However, I poured the squash into the sauce that I had made. This is what ended up creating a completely different looking meal entirely.
I decided why not make some garlic toast to go along with the now turned soup like dish. The spices I listed above were added to it to give it more flavor. Then for the finishing touch when serving sprinkle some parsley in it.
I apologize for the not so quality photos. I’m still unpacking so I have to try to find my cameras. Anyway, it’s good to be back and ready to blog again.
Until next time…have a fantastic start to your week everyone!
