Finding creative ways to serve delicious, yet healthy meals can be a real challenge for us all, but thankfully that’s not the case when it comes to this absolutely irresistible spaghetti squash dish! Have you ever seen this kind of squash at the grocery store? It’s unique-looking and almost seems like a yellow melon on the outside – don’t worry, it’s not at all hard to find at your local grocery store and is also pretty inexpensive. Once cooked, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to discover that it really does come darn close to the look and feel of traditional spaghetti pasta. So much so, in fact, that you might never know it’s actually a plant! In addition to its sunny yellow color, spaghetti squash is also packed with nutrients and tons of flavor that we found get even better when we fold in the creamy homemade peanut sauce with fresh roasted broccoli and toasted peanuts. What an amazing way to eat something healthy that doesn’t compromise on taste at all!
Cutting and roasting a spaghetti squash is also quick. Just chop off the very end with a sharp knife, slice it in half and scoop out the seeds. Drizzle the insides with a little olive oil, turn them over on a cookie sheet and roast them at 375 degrees for 40 minutes or so until tender. The fun part for us was taking a fork, after the squash has cooked and cooled a bit, and gently fluffing the inside to create the strings of “spaghetti”. Who would have ever thought mother nature makes pasta? You can get everything done while the squash is roasting or you can cook the squash, cut up the broccoli and prepare the sauce a day or two in advance if you know you will be pressed for time later. It’s that simple, healthy, and fun!
Speaking of fun, this is also a dish that we think both big and little kiddos in your life will love. As an added bonus, the fresh ingredients can also help anyone take an easy and tasty step in a healthy direction…even if you know some people who don’t love vegetables, just leave the word “squash” out of the conversation and call it spaghetti! We won’t tell. Seriously, most people really would never guess that they’re eating veggies with this recipe because it’s so flavorful on its own and doesn’t feel like you’re skimping on ingredients. In particular, it’s the sweet and salty flavors of the peanut sauce that really do bring this one home, so feel free to drizzle any extra sauce over your squash for maximum enjoyment. And don’t forget to sprinkle the peanuts on top before serving – that’s the best part! We guarantee that you won’t be able to get enough of this amazing dish!
