So if you’re a pasta lover, this whole “wholesome” thing is probably absolute ridiculousness to you! I mean right? Most noodles and such are so processed and jacked with that it’s far from wholesome!! Buuuut what if there was a way to still eat your spaghetti and meatballs, without the pasta, but with the same texture/consistency of those deliciously satisfying noodles?
Don’t look at me like that! It’s a thing, I promise!
I was doubtful tooooo, but check out this legit recipe. Gluten free and wholesome and absolutely scrumdiddlyumptious! It feels like you’re cheating…but it’s totally good for you. It’s pasta with zero guilt or bloating! …come on…who doesn’t want that?!
1. Cut squash in half and remove all seeds and pulp.
2. Place on a baking sheet.
3. Place in your oven at 375F for 35-40 minutes. (I like mine a little crispy so I take it out at the 35 min mark).
4. Once the squash is cooked, you can throw on an oven mitt and begin to scrape your “pasta” into a bowl while it is still hot. Pull a fork lengthwise through the flesh to separate it into long strands. You can make your “pasta” ahead of time and have it in the fridge to dress up however you like!
Seriously though. So stinkin yummy! I had no idea it would be as good as people said! It’s similar to al dente, angel hair pasta! A little firm and almost tastes like it’s been buttered! I was beyond shocked and had to share 😉
Definitely me last night… (and of course, that’d be Kombucha as opposed to wine).
Have a good daaaay! And always: Eat Clean. Laugh A Lot. Pray Always.
There’s not a whole lot that a great, deep, belly laugh can’t fix 😉
