This recipe is the direct antithesis of “fancy” – which, other than the fact that it’s just plain delicious – is why it’s so awesome. It’s the perfect way to celebrate and enjoy seasonal produce without having to get all fussy and stuff. Chili! And cheese! Hellooo, my pretties.
Okay, so they are squash, so they’re actually not the prettiest things in the world. I mean, can anything called “squash” be pretty? But no matter! I promise you – you won’t care in the slightest.
I’m totally in love with this recipe. It might be the easiest way ever to convert professed squash haters. Spaghetti squash is already a great gateway squash. As long as you don’t go into things expecting an exact replica of pasta, you’re likely to be pleasantly surprised. Firm, almost crunchy strands without that “squashy” taste. It’s pretty great.
