I have been meaning to try spaghetti squash for months and months. I was pleasantly surprised when I noticed a big ole squash on my trip to Central Market so scooped it up to head home and see what all the fuss was about. 

Spaghetti squash
Ground meat of your choice (lean turkey meat for this family)
Marinara sauce (I wish I had the urge to make my own but I did not at all once I saw this jar...more on that below)
Salt, Pepper, Olive Oil, Butter
To start...Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and then place the squash right on in there and bake if for 35- 40 mins. Grab the ole ball off the rack (with oven mitts, of course) and then let it cool for a few minutes. Cut right down the middle and then scoop out all of the seeds. Take a fork and start scrapping.. This is the really fun part (and quite the stress reliever at that).
I pause to feature the cutest little sous chef on the block...
Cook the ground meat in a skillet and then add in pasta sauce to heat.  In a seperate pan, place the squash "noodles" and sprinkle a dash of olive oil, salt, pepper, and a few cubes of butter. Let the butter melt and the noodles simmer a little bit.

This was probably the highlight of my day. I normally am a Whole Foods girl but I decided to venture over to the Central Market today. I was perusing the marinara sauce isle when I was stopped in my tracks. Angelo's..DOUBLE TAKE...No...Could it really be? Not my favorite restaurant in the entire world, Angelo's on Mulberry Street in Little Italy?!?! OMG. Yes. Angelo's is a gem in Little Italy and the first place I ever had someone hand twirl my pasta for me. My dad took me here when I was younger and despite the insane wait, the staff came from the back carrying a table which they set up right under a perfect chandelier for us to dine. When the food arrived, a server hand twirled each bite of my pasta with a spoon onto my fork. Needless to say, this is my favorite place. And the fact that I just found their magic potion of a sauce here in Texas is just insane. Stock up people! 

Review...this stuff is amazing. Casey even liked it. No he loved it. And he also said the pasta sauce is probably the best he has ever had. Angelo's, you've not only won my heart, but my husband's as well and I am ecstatic to say I will see you in a few days...
