Spaghetti Squash & Cheese „Risotto“!

Spaghetti Squash Cheese RisottoPic by Franzi.

I am regularly reading American cooking sites. The one thing I see there often and wanted to try out forever is Spaghetti Squash! This season I finally found one and carried it home happily, thinking about all the recipes that would be possible with it. Finally I decided for a „classic“ preparation method – simply with lemon zest, cheese, pepper and salt. It was as delicious as a cheesy risotto … with a (pumpkin) twist!

Recipe: Serves 3-4.

Ingredients: 1 spaghetti squash, ¼ cup unsalted butter, 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest, 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, ½ cup grated parmesan, ½ cup gouda, freshly grounded black pepper, salt.

Preparation: Pierce squash all over with a knife. Roast on a baking sheet, at 175°C (turning every 20 minutes) until tender. This takes app. 60–90 minutes. Let cool slightly. Halve lengthwise and discard seeds. Scrape flesh with a fork to remove in long strands. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high. Cook squash, lemon zest, thyme, and cheese. Stir constantly to combine, about 2 minutes. Stir in pepper and season with salt.

  1. Yes I love spaghetti squash as well. Just too bad you don’t find it very often here in Germany. Haven’t found it anywhere in Frankfurt yet..
