Spaghetti Squash with Salmon {Perfect Pairing!}

Spaghetti squash.  One of my new favorite ‘indulgences”.  I can’t even believe how this is vegetable.  If you’re never tried this, then I highly recommend it.  The great thing about it is you can change up the sauce as much as you would with regular noodles – it makes no difference to the squash.

I cut my spaghetti squash in half, sprinkled some olive oil, salt and pepper over the opened squash and baked it, fruit size down on a cookie sheet at 335 for 40 minutes…ish.  Until the squash is soft.  And then, the fun begins.

Speaking of a stronger sauce, nothing says “strong flavor” like fish!  We had some leftover smoked salmon so I decided to pull that apart, and use my cajun cream sauce.  This was DELICIOUS.  I’d try this smoked salmon spaghetti squash soon. Tonight, if I were you.
