spaghetti squash pomodoro


Hello!  Well, I had this past weekend all to myself while my son was competing in the Florida State Latin Forum (state tournament) in Orlando.  He left from school with the Latin Club on Thursday and was back super late Saturday night since the kids had the much-anticipated opportunity to blow off steam and enjoy their victories following the tournament at Universal Orlando.  So……that gave me an opportunity to cook up a storm and test recipes that have been on my mind.  I really don’t recall seeing a lot of spaghetti squash recipes over the past fall and winter months so I thought I would try to come up with something that felt more like spring to utilize this versatile vegetable.  I love Pasta Pomodoro – so why not try it using spaghetti squash instead of pasta?  I went to Whole Foods last week with the intent on getting their Pasta Pomodoro from the prepared foods section and as would be just my luck, they didn’t have that as one of their offerings that day so perhaps that’s how this recipe transpired.  It’s really easy to make once you’ve roasted the squash and hollowed out the tomatoes – the rest of it comes together very quickly.  The ingredients are simple….but high-quality ingredients definitely make a difference….. farmer’s market tomatoes and spaghetti squash (thank you Sarasota Farmer’s Market!), delicious, salty Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, and fresh herbs really help to make it an outstanding dish.  Your kids will also love it since it does a pretty good job of mimicking spaghetti (anything that resembles pasta in my house is a winner),  It’s a wonderful vegetarian dish as well for Meatless Mondays – or any night of the week!!  Serve it as an entree or a side – your choice.

admin - Thank you Chris!! I do indeed think you might be the only one in da hood with a block of Parmigiano Reggiano 😉 Enjoy!

Chris - I have an abundant supply of tomatoes and I was wondering what to do with them. It’s one of the few foods that my kids are not fond of and I’m always looking to come up with something different to tease their taste buds. Not that I allow faddy eaters in my kitchen, just trying to give them something different you understand…

This will definitely fit the bill and thank for the truly wonderful pictures and easy to follow steps… I happen to have a block of Parmigiano Reggiano, and I bet that’s a first #inthehood.

Thank you Stacey 😉
