What We've Been Up To

Meals the Work

I am a dabbler in many things. One thing that I do all the time is cook. Wednesdays are going to focus on a recipe that I have tried and how much of success or failure it turned out to be

What: Dragon Spaghetti Squash

Commentary:

I'm a dabbler so I tend to try recipes exactly the first time, but after that any change is free game. I have made this recipe 12 different ways and every time it's been a success. Finally I realized that I should just try the sauce on something other than pasta. I used everyone's favorite pasta substitute: Spaghetti Squash.

That said, I actually HATE when people replace pasta with that squash. I prefer to treat it as a vegetable, since that is what it is. I think the reason it worked so well was because it is so bland and the sauce in this recipe is so versatile. I did find that it was a bit spicier on squash than on pasta so I added a touch of creaminess at the end. 

Recipe Adjustments: Used a small spaghetti squash instead of pasta, added a tablespoon of sour cream at the end
