A gluten-free day today. I had lunch at Molcas’ and for dinner some faux pasta.
Here’s a fairly quick way to make yourself spaghetti squash “pasta”.
Cut lengthwise and clean out a spaghetti squash. Lay it cut side down in a microwave-safe dish, such as a Pyrex pie plate. Add enough water to cover the bottom of the dish. Cover the plate with plastic wrap and nuke it for about 10 minutes. The squash will be soft when it’s ready. Carefully remove the squash and use a fork to loosen the strands.
To accompany the squash I prepared an Alfredo sauce with sautéed shallot, Canadian bacon, and peas. Tossed the cooked faux pasta in the sauce and it’s ready.
This took maybe 20 minutes to prepare and was healthy! Yay for not cracking open the ice cream after dinner (or instead of dinner).
