Cooking: Pizza-inspired spaghetti squash.

When Mom and Dad were up over Easter, they brought with them a giant spaghetti squash for us to enjoy. I must admit, I had never before had spaghetti squash but it was delicious. We tried to make a 'pizza' from it as instructed from some recipe online but it turned out to be more like a quiche as the egg didn't mix together and it never turned crisp. Regardless, it was delicious and I have now bought more spaghetti squash to feast upon.

Monster of a squash!
Baked for an hour.
All the yummy bits were scooped out.
We mixed the squash with a egg, oil, mozza cheese, salt, and pepper and spread it on a tinfoil-lined cookie sheet and baked for 15 minutes. The recipe said to flip it to make an even crispiness, so we flipped it with much difficulty but seeing as it never crisped up, it wasn't worth the struggle.
Topped it with green pepper, feta cheese, tomatoes, and chicken.
Baked again for 15 minutes and yum!

Ohhhhh this sounds DELICIOUS. I'm going to try this for sure! The only thing that stops me from buying spaghetti squash regularly is the struggle of cutting it in half. I don't know why, it just always seems so daunting and difficult. And I'm stubborn, so I don't want to ask the man in the house to do it for me. :P

That is the problem with all squash, cutting them is like a workout. I did find an improvement after we acquired a few super sharp knives.

Google Tex Mex Spaghetti Squash. It's excellent and the skin/peeling is the vessel.
