spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise and seeded
toasted pine nuts
grated Pecorino Romano cheese
chopped fresh sage
salt and pepper to taste
Ohhh, I could eat a bowl full of this! My cooking time was shorter, about 30 minutes, as my spaghetti squash was small. It is so important not to overcook this if you want the squash to separate into spaghetti-like strands! Copying what a favorite restaurant of ours does, I added julienned zucchini, unpeeled--makes for a livelier, more colorful presentation. I've also made this using sunflower seeds and it is equally delicious.
I found the sage overpowering, I would use only 1 Tablespoon instead of 2.
This is SO good.
It's a shame that the ONE person who rated this one star has to skew everyone's perception of how good this is.
It's definitely 5 stars.
I had to use rubbed sage (I used 1tsp), but it was still AWESOME.
I loved every bite.
The only flaw is my spaghetti squash was too small and it didn't fill my family of 4's tummies all the way.
This would be a GREAT lunch dish because it's lighter than most meals.
this is delicious. i sauteed some garlic, shallots, and onions, then sauteed the cooked squash a little bit. very tasty. for thanksgiving i will be doing basically the same thing, but doubling the recipe, maybe a bit more cheese, putting the whole cooked thing in a big casserole dish, and topping with bread crumbs. yummy!
This was great, I will definitely make it again. I used powdered sage, walnuts and a parmesan, asiago, romano blend. Really tasty and healthy too.
I LOVED,LOVED,LOVED this recipe. The pine nuts, romano and squash really worked together. I threw in some garlic, and added my usual blend of spices(we like strongly seasoned food.)The only reason I'm rating it a 4 star recipe is because my oh-so-loveable hubby didn't care for it. But really, what does he know?
Loved this Loved this, I did make a few changes, I roasted my pine nuts, just to add more of a nutty flavor, we are on the Atkins diet, and was I ever in need for pasta and this did it for me..Thank you !!
Excellent! Followed the recipe exactly and added crushed red pepper flakes per my own liking for a bit of kick. A keeper!
