Jo's Story

More times then not I substitute Spaghetti Squash for pasta in recipes. This one is laced with garlic and olive oil and tastes divine. Serve with your favourite pasta sauce and I think you'll be totally delighted with the results.

Ingredients

1
spaghetti squash
2 large
cloves garlic, pressed
2 Tbsp
olive oil
salt and pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat your oven to 365'F
2
Line a large metal baking tray with heavy aluminum foil.
3
Cut your spaghetti squash in half and scoop out the seeds.
4
Put a tablespoon of olive oil in each half of the spaghetti squash and with a pastry brush, brush the squash pieces with the oil until covered.
5
Press one clove of garlic into each cavity of the squash and add salt and pepper to each half. Place each piece on the foil lined tray.
6
Bake for 35-40 minutes. Test with a fork to make sure the threads of the squash come out easily.
7
Let it sit for about 20 minutes in a cool place and then remove the squash strands with a fork from the shell.
8
Store in the fridge if you're not going to eat it right away, otherwise serve it with your favourite pasta sauce.
9
Enjoy

I am cooking this now and I think I am do it wrong! Was I supposed to take the seeds and "strings" with them all out? I left the strings! So in that case, instead of putting the garlic down in the firm part of the vegetable, I have it 1/2 way down buried in the strings too!
Our variety of vegetables growing up was very limited and usually canned. Well, I guess I'll find out soon what happens!
