Not so long ago, my dear friend Ali (follow her blog here) tried to convince me to eat spaghetti squash. She told me how delicious it was and it was a great alternative to noodles. I thought she had gone crazy! Spaghetti from a SQUASH? I said, "Girl, you've lost your mind." (I'm 75% sure that's an accurate statement)

Well, skip forward two and a half years and guess what I tried out last night? Yes, you guessed it! Spaghetti squash. How did it taste? Not too shabby! It was the perfect dish for a dinner date after a beautiful day of Polar Bear Plunging!

I found a recipe on Kraft Foods and modified it just a tad. The original recipe for Cheesey Spaghetti Squash can be found here.

Whoops! Forgot the Squash.


  • Spaghetti squash (we used two!)
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Spaghetti Sauce
  • Parsley or Italian Seasoning
  • EVOO (as Rachel Ray says) 
Make it!
  • Microwave your squash for 10-12 minutes. Make sure you stab it with a fork a few times to allow for steaming. As demonstrated below. :)
  • Cut the squash in half and pull the seeds from the insides. Use a fork to scrape the sides of the squash to form spaghetti-ish strands.
  • Throw the strands and your ingredients in a mixing bowl and toss 'em up!
  • Enjoy with your date!
Take Out Your Anger on Some Squash!
Dinner is Served!
Our dish was complete with a side of asparagus. Thanks to a suggestion from Pinterest, I seasoned the asparagus with olive oil, parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. Then, I stuck them in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes!

I think it's about that time to enjoy a little nappy-poo, Netflix, and my couch while I mentally prepare for a spectacular night of television. Yes, I'm talking about The Oscars! 

A Marvelous Mess
