Why didn’t I think of it myself? We’ve had it before as a vegetable side dish, but using it in place of pasta is a stroke of genius! The original recipe is from Fine Cooking and uses ground beef and a smaller-sized squash (2 pounds). We like turkey (it was on sale) and I didn’t have the recipe with me, so I ended up with a 4-pound squash. The only other alteration I made was leaving out the water portion at the end. Substituting pasta allows for more servings of bread to be enjoyed. Try the garlic bread recipe, too!
Comments: It was another winner for dinner tonight. I didn’t have a baguette, but I did have slices of Italian bread, which worked fine. Oh, use a really sharp and big knife to open the squash. Let the kids rake the cooked squash to get the spaghetti and watch their eyes open wide in amazement.
