SPAGHETTI SQUASH BURRITO BOWLS

February 5, 2015

At the beginning of our marriage, I made an entree with spaghetti squash that was not a success. (I think largely because I under-roasted the squash). My husband has been sort of afraid of it ever since. I too was once bitten, twice shy and returned to it only rarely since.

It was when the idea struck me to make burrito bowls inside of spaghetti squash that I had newfound courage to climb back into the saddle. They happened. They are great. And healthy. I do not even need porcelain bowls at all anymore!

(Note: I do still need porcelain bowls.)
