I’m Italian. I love pasta…or I loved it. It didn’t love me at all. My body doesn’t even like the gluten free stuff. Grains and I just don’t get along. SO I’ve fallen in love with spaghetti squash…except it’s hot down here in Texas.
Even in the fall (It was in the 80s most of October!), when I crave hearty meals like soups, stews…and spaghetti. The problem here is that boiling noodles takes around 10 minutes, give or take. Baking a spaghetti squash? Well, that takes quite a bit more time.
And when it’s 80 degrees outside, the last thing i want to is to have my oven on for an hour or more. SO, I got creative. I know that I can microwave a spaghetti squash, but what I really wanted to do was to have a little time hands-on as possible (since I’ve got a bum leg and all).
Turns out spaghetti squash and meatballs in the crockpot is not only fast, it’s also super tasty!

This is also amazing with some extra spinach tossed in with the sauce. I’ve also added black olives and some additional finely chopped onion when I’m feeling sassy.
What’s your favorite way to prepare spaghetti squash?
