  • Spaghetti Squash Primavera with Pesto Cream Sauce
  • If someone had told me 10 years ago that one of my favorite meals as an adult would be comprised 100% of vegetables, I would have given them the “you’re crazy” look. And if they added that I would be growing most of those vegetables in my own garden, I would have declared that they were certifiably off-their-rocker-insane. Me? Grow vegetables… and then eat them?! Oh, the horror!
  • But life is full of curve balls and somewhere along the way I fell in love with vegetables. I actually look forward to eating them now (shocking, I know). Maybe it’s a normal part of growing up, maybe it’s because I’m more health conscious now, but I think it’s mostly because I’ve finally figured out how to make them taste pretty darn good! I also discovered that my mom’s green thumb and love for gardening was passed down to me (thank you mom)!
  • Every spring I look forward to the day that the garden gets planted. We have a teeny, tiny, postage-stamp-sized yard so it’s been a challenge figuring out how to grow a decent sized garden. Each year, the garden takes over more and more of the back yard. Pretty soon it’s going to be one big zucchini patch out there!
  • I’m fairly certain that the gardening gene has also been inherited by our oldest son. He’s 5 now and loves to help in the garden (sometimes he’s a little over zealous with the pruning, but I love his enthusiasm). This year he even helped me prepare the soil and plant our garden. Together, he and I managed to plant the largest garden we’ve had so far! It’s been fun watching our plants grown and the vegetables slowly ripen.
  • Today I’m sharing with you my garden, and one of my most favorite meals of all time- Spaghetti Squash Primavera with Pesto Cream Sauce! It’s delicious, packed with healthy vegetables, and bursting with the flavors of summer time. The best part of all is that I grew most of the ingredients in my own garden! Earthy, roasted spaghetti squash tossed with sauteed fresh veggies goes from good to amazing when it’s topped with this pesto cream sauce. Dare to guess what makes the sauce creamy? You’ll have to check out the recipe below to find out!
