Spaghetti squash + Autumn = Crockpot cooking
Plug the slow cooker in and turn it onto high setting, dump 1 cup of water into it, poke knife holes into the squash, place it inside, cover with the lid and let it steam/cook for a few hours. It is as easy as that!
It will be hot when it is cooked, so remove it using tongs....yes, lesson learned the hard way : )
Cut it in half, remove the seeds with a spoon and then spoon out the spaghetti squash into a large bowl.
At this point, you can add whatever you like.
For something like the picture you see above:
1 spaghetti squash, cooked and shredded
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
3 tbsp. butter or olive oil
Salt, pepper, garlic powder and parsley, to taste
Add butter/oil and mix well.
Add cheese and spices.
Mix well and serve.
How easy is that? Want to add protein? Add cooked shrimp, lemon juice from a lemon and whala...a complete meal!
