“UFOs”…..unidentified “food” objects….
The pictured “UFO” is spaghetti squash. It is shaped like a small oblong watermelon and the average weight is between 2 and 5 lbs. You will want to pick the most yellow you can find, it will be the most ripe and ready to eat.
I love using this unusual vegetable. It is a nice alternative to wheat pastas. It has a very mild taste so I like to use lots of onions and garlic for flavor. I love the addition of sun dried tomatoes, they add a nice layer of flavor and color as well. Serve this recipe as a delicious side to most any roasted meat or enjoy for lunch the next day.
