This is a super fun and easy way to get those good veggies in! During the summer when we have a ton of squash this is a good way to use it up. You can’t have too many zucchini recipes right? Squoodles is our name for squash noodles. Silly but catchy!
Squoodles and Spaghetti Squash with Marinara Sauce
To Make Squoodles:
Take summer squash of your choice and slice thinly with a mandolin. Blanch in boiling water for 2-3 minutes and then drain water. Squoodles are now ready to be topped with Marinara sauce and served.
Note: In the summer when we have a ton of squash from the garden we like to freeze some ahead of time. To freeze slice with mandolin and place in freezer bags. When you are ready to to use blanch in the same manor.
To Make Marinara Sauce:
- 4-6 quarts tomatoes
- 6 Tbs. fresh or frozen basil
- 1 large onion
- 4-6 cloves garlic
- 6 stalks celery
- 6-8 carrots
- ½ pound ground pork (optional)
- 1 Tbs. sugar
- 2 Tbs. butter
- salt and pepper to taste
Brown meat if using and set aside. Saute’ onion and garlic in butter until brown. Add celery, carrots and basil and saute’ another 5-10 minutes. Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan or slow cooker and simmer until desired thickness. Blend together with a stick blender or a Vita Mix until smooth. Serve over Squoodles or spaghetti squash.
We are almost at our half way point in our Word of Wisdom 30 day health challenge! How’s that for determination?! Time really does fly.
We seem to eat oatmeal for breakfast a lot these days. It’s fast and easy not to mention it helps keep our energy up until lunch time.
We had our leftover Squoodles and Spaghetti Squash with Marinara Sauce for lunch. It was yummy and healthy with all the veggie intake.
Veggie Quiche for dinner! We are adding peppers, onions and spinach. Sometimes we like to add broccoli and cauliflower as well. Veggie Quiche is a great way to use up our farm fresh eggs and we can sneak in the veggies super easy!
