Have you ever heard of a Spaghetti Melon or Spaghetti Squash?
I hadn't until recently. But I'm happy to have discovered them at my local fruit and vegie shop.
They are easy to prepare. You can just put it whole into a big pot and boil it for about 30 minutes.
Or I prefer to roast it in the oven.
First I cut it into quarters and scoop out the seeds. Give it a quick spray of olive oil, a sprinkle of salt and pepper . Pop it into the oven to cook at about 200 degreesC
30 - 40 minutes later..
We love it with a Bolognese sauce, or tossed with basil pesto and feta cheese.
Keep an eye out for one, they're worth a try.
I figure a post about Spaghetti Melons is pretty random so I'm linking up with Really Random Thursday.
