The perfect picture of what we are getting this week! Also TOMATOES!!!!!! So let’s go over a simple pasta recipe with a twist, using spaghetti squash instead of wheat based pasta.
How to prepare Spaghetti Squash
Slice the squash in half lengthwise, or from stem to blossom end. Spoon out the seeds. You can cook vegetable spaghetti in the microwave on high for 5 minutes per pound, or roast in the oven for 30 minutes per pound at 350 degrees. Take a fork and scrape the inside flesh. It will come out in long thin strands like spaghetti noodles. When we eat veggie spaghetti, I put the sauce or pesto inside the squash halves and we just eat from the squash. This makes clean up really easy!
You can use the tomatoes, peppers and basil from the farm for a delicious sauce to compliment your squash.
I finally picked some ripe cantaloupe last week, and I’m starting to see more turn ripe as the days progress.
We have some CSA volunteers helping at the Cumberland Market this week, and could use some help with the other markets when anyone has a free moment! At the farm, our help would be getting the fall gardens ready for plants, and seeding lettuce for the fall. Just email me when you think you can get some time in for the season!
We’ll see you all this week!
