This is the very first time i have have ever cooked or eaten a SPAGHETTI SQUASH.!!
I want to let you know if you have naver tried it...please do!
It is delicious.
Even tho I put this cajun recipe together, it can also be eaten...with just salt & pepper and the added ingredient of butter (good ole butter) is all it needs!..YUMMY !
Hope you enjoy this dish as much as I did.

How to Make SPAGHETTI SQUASH & CAJUN SAUCE with MEATBALLS

Step-by-Step

  • 1Wash the squash.
    prick a few times with large fork.
    Put in Micro-wave Tender cooker, with lid on and locked.
    Cook...8 minutes per pound.
    Wait till yellow stem goes down, for steam to escape. Then open.. Take out and put on a cutting board. Cut in half,remove seeds.
    Use a fork to separate the squash spaghetti strings. Set aside.
    OR.... Bake or cook the squash with your recipe, the conventional way.
    While squash is cooking, prepare the cajun sauce.
  • 2In a skillet with the butter, green pepper & onion cook a few minutes on medium heat then add garlic, cook a minute or two.
    Add this to a pan with the canned cajun tomatoes added,
    cook on medium to blend the flavors.
    Put warm squash on a serving plate, top with the cajun sauce, and meatballs ..if desired.
  • 3Serve with a crunchy bread,or CORN PONE
    my two recipes on JAP:
    #1..."CORN PONE A SOUTHERN FRIED CORN MEAL RECIPE".
    #2..."CRUSTY BREAD over night & NO KNEADING"
  • 4If you would like to use fresh tomatoes,
