Whenever I write updated recipe posts, I do so with mixed feelings. I'm somewhat embarrassed by the original posts due to the horrible photos I shared... But I'm also amazed by how long I've managed to keep this blog alive.
This blog has seen me through so many stages of my life. While it may be cringeworthy to go back and see the quality of my earliest posts, it is fun to reread the older posts... and to relive those memories.
Now, as you can imagine, I've been meaning to share this recipe with updated photos for a long time. I thought putting this post in my content calendar would help keep me on track, but life got in the way.
So, despite all my planning and good intentions... Here we are. Exactly twelve years from the day that I first shared this recipe.
Funny how things work out.
Bounties of winter squash have started to show up at our local farmer's markets. So now is the perfect time to make this hearty recipe that calls for a base of spaghetti squash.
One of the things I love about this recipe is its simplicity. And since you can pull the sauce together while the spaghetti squash is cooking in the microwave, you can have dinner on the table relatively quickly.
Let's talk about the sauce.
This sauce is so versatile, so don't be afraid to switch things up to suit your personal tastes. Since our family loves garlic, I tend to double the amount of garlic in any given recipe. In our pre-kid days, I'd throw in a little extra red pepper to cater to our love of all things spicy. Play around with the ingredients and have fun!
