Spaghetti Squash ... Italian Style:)

Ciao everyone!

So, you may have noticed a trend on this blog...

I am not very  at the art of going to bed early.


Like at all..

I am also not very good at leaving open spaces of time in my day to relax.

Especially in December.

So, simple recipes are great to keep on hand... especially in this busy (yet extrememly joyous) season!

I don't know about you, but I refuse to believe that simple has to mean "unhealthy".

No thank you, McDonalds, I have a better idea.

You keep your greasy fries, and I will make something so delicious that I want to eat it every day. For every meal. Because it is SO GOOD. :)

(ok, maybe not evvvery meal..but rather often would be fantastic;] )

Spaghetti Squash, Red Lady Style:)
makes: whatever amount you desire...just choose ingredient amounts accordingly:)
Cooked spaghetti squash *
Part-skim ricotta cheese
Part-skim mozzarella cheese
Diced tomatoes (fresh or from a can... if using a can, the DelMonte basil, oregano, garlic one is                's like a super easy quick sauce!)
Optional: fresh garlic or onion, minced; fresh or dried basil, oregano, parsley

1) Combine squash, ricotta, and mozzarella in a bowl. Microwave for about 20 seconds to melt cheeses.
2) Add tomatoes and whatever other ingredients you like.
3) Enjoy:)
* To cook spaghetti squash:
-Chop off the very ends.
-Cut in half, lengthwise.
-Place face down in a large glass dish and pierce rind with a knife All Over.
-For the OVEN METHOD: Cook for about an hour at 375 degrees, with a bit of water to cover the bottom of the dish.
-For the MICROWAVE METHOD: Cook for about 12 minutes, but then let it sit for a few minutes to finish the cooking process and so you don't burn yourself. (Piercing the rind is ESPECIALLY important with this method!)

Ciao for now!

-The Red Lady-
