Spaghetti Squash

I have been wanting to have spaghetti squash, but was TOTALLY clueless about what to do. With help from Bensbabe I created my own recipe. This is my first time creating my own recipe for dinner... I always get nervous about it. I am glad I did as it turned out VERY good.

I took my own take on the spaghetti squash and made spaghetti and tossed it with squash I didn't actually use a spaghetti squash.

Adam doesn't like squash so I made the sauce and pasta took his portion out and then added squash into mine.

This is not a pretty picture at all! But it was a VERY good meal!

Spaghetti Squash (From: Myself)
  • 1 squash, I prefer acorn
  • Handful pine nuts
  • 1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 c. chicken broth
  • 1 c. half and half
  • 1 lb. spaghetti
  • 1 t. sage
  • 1 t. sugar
  • 2 T. butter
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1 t. white pepper
  • 1 t. garlic salt
  • 1 t. onion powder

Bake acorn squash at 350 for about an hour or until tender. Then peel out squash from skin.

Start pasta water on Medium to start bowl. Once at bowling point add pasta and start sauce.

Melt butter in a pan. Once melted brown pine nuts with sugar, onion powder, and garlic salt.

Add half and half, heavy cream, chicken broth, and spices.

Bring to bowl, reduce heat to medium and bowl for 10-15 minutes.

Drain water put pasta back into pan add sauce, and squash mix around and serve.
