The cold front has hit us here in South Africa which beckons pizza, pasta and everything sinful. Finally decided to try out my spaghetti squash for the first time and I must say: the results were delectable!
Ingredients: Serves 2-4
Half a medium spaghetti squash
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons ricotta
Handful chopped mushrooms
handful chopped cherry tomatoes
100g grated cheddar cheese
Tablespoon sweet basil (dried)
Tablespoon origanum (dried)
Method: 1H20Min (WORTH IT :D)
Place a tablespoon of butter onto your spaghetti squash and sprinkle some salt and pepper. Place on a baking tray and bake for 45 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.
While waiting for the squash: fry your cherry tomatoes and mushrooms in butter and add the ricotta and herbs.
Take the squash out and allow to cool. Using a fork, Take out the spaghetti strands and place in a bowl. Mix with the cherry tomatoes and mushrooms. then place back into the hollow squash skin. Sprinkle with grated cheese and place under the grill for about 15 minutes.
