If there’s one thing that I know and understand, it’s that my husband absolutely, positively, unequivocably hates squash of any kind. Detests it to the point that most of the time he doesn’t even want to be around when I prepare or eat it. I, on the other hand, LOVE squash. I picked up a spaghetti squash about a month ago (got to love the long life of winter squash!) at the farmer’s market for $1, and I’ve been trying to find a dish to make in which maybe I could hide the squash.
No dice. I couldn’t hide it. He was well aware of what it was, and was very reluctant to try it. But it’s got sausage! And cheese! Everything tastes better with sausage and cheese. So he gave it a shot. And liked it. And asked for seconds. AND asked me to make it again sometime. I never thought I’d ever hear the words “I want” and “squash” ever coming out of his mouth in the same sentence. Color me surprised. I guess there’s a first time for everything.
Here’s the recipe, from Recipezaar. We added just a touch more cheese than the recipe called for, but otherwise, we followed it exactly.
