Spaghetti Squash

Normy and I tried Spaghetti Squash for the 1st time a few weekends ago thanks to dinner at Amy’s! That dinner was kinda special! It’s not to often people cook for me, and cook good! (there I said it) So we went to Amy’s and not only was it a fabulous dinner, but it was also gluten-free and it was the first time we tried Spaghetti Squash and let me tell you! There will be many more Recipes in the future on this blog of Spaghetti Squash. Amy and ger family opened a whole new door of food for us!

So when Amy’s Hubby Jeff made us Spaghetti squash he put it in a baking dish filled half way with water. So that is how Normy and I did it. Yes I know MICROWAVE! So against the ways of JAMIE cooking!

Soooooo get you a spaghetti Squash. We got a pretty good-sized one…

Then get a glass baking dish that the squash will fit in and will fit in the microwave and put one half of the squash flat side down and fill half way with water and put in microwave for about 15-20 minutes.

once its done, flip it over (don’t burn yourself) and get a fork and scrape the sides and it will look like hash browns. That’s what it reminded me of the first time I saw Jeff do this…Then after scrapping the sides and getting all the squash that will come off the sides and bottom

Mix butter and salt and pepper in and I put all the squash over the butter to help it melt and kinda stir it up best you can, then pour it in a bowl and add a little more salt and pepper and you could even add more butter if you wanted too

or more pepper (Like me)

Serve hot and you won’t be disappointed! To me they taste like hashbrowns and look like them too!
