Spaghetti Squash with Honey

Spaghetti Squash with Honey

Spaghetti squash is almost a miracle food. It's easy to make, packed with nutrients, and can be customized any way you see fit. One of my favorite ways of making it a complete meal is adding pan seared shrimp and scampi sauce, which soaks right into the "noodles." Trust me, you'll love it! Our spaghetti squash with honey is a little twist on the classic. The Buckwheat Eastern Shore Honey adds a deep richness to the dish, and keeps the squash from drying out.

Easy+Tasty Spaghetti Squash with Honey

When looking for a good squash, pick one that is firm, with bright skin. It should be heavy for the size and without any cuts or bruises. These squash are hard to cut, so be ready to put in a little elbow grease!

Don't waste the seeds from a spaghetti squash (like I did on accident). They can be washed and roasted just like pumpkin seeds would be. Toss them with salt, pepper, olive oil, and a little Worcestershire sauce for a crunchy treat, that tastes great in homemade trail mixes and nut mixes.
