Go-To Meal #1

I am a sucker for routine. If I like something, I tend to want to eat it constantly.

For the past two years, we have made this dish if not every week, then every other week. Not only is it delcious - but you can play around with the different kinds of sauces you use, vegetables you add in, and spices you spice it up with. Be careful, though, and read the label! Sometimes, for whatever unnecessary reason, they like to add sugar into spaghetti sauce.

Speaking of really good tomato sauces, here is my favorite:

You can find the different Lucini's sauces at Wegman's, Moms, Martin's...

Oh - so the meal - Spaghetti Squash Pasta! I know I have posted this recipe before, but I am telling you, we are all creatures of habit - and I continue to make this dish every week because it is delicioius and easy!

Spaghetti Squash Pasta

1 Spaghetti Squash (the bigger, the more leftovers you get)
1 Pound of Ground Meat of Choice (beef, chicken, turkey)
Spaghetti Sauce of Choice (read the label!)
Optional: Diced Vegetables (try onions, mushrooms, zuccini)
Optional: Spices (Italian Seasoning, Garlic, name it!)

1. Cut the spaghetti squash in half the long way (stem to stem). Scoop out the seeds and pumpkin like goop with a spoon.
2. Place the two halves face down on a plate and cover the plate with plastic wrap. Microwave for 10 minutes. I am sure that you could bake the spaghetti squash, but I don't have time for that...
3. Brown up your meat like any normal human being knows how to do! I usually brown it in the sauce pan so I only dirty one bowl.
4. Drain the fat (if that is your thing - it is not John's...gross). Add in the optional diced vegetables and jar of sauce. Heat up!
5. Uncover your spaghetti squash and fork out with a fork. It should look like spaghetti!

Eat this delicious meal! If you don't like it, I don't believe you! My brother, who is one of the pickiest eaters I have ever met, ate two bowls of this stuff when I made it. Get addicted. Make it once a week. Play around with the recipe. Let me know what you do so I can copy you!
