Eat Your Vegetables
Somehow Italians are able to eat pasta all day without gaining an ounce yet still able to fit into their designer Gucci jeans. #jealous.
Just as Gucci jeans will probably never hang in my closet, eating pasta all day will also not be happening. After our recent trip to Italy, pasta has been on my mind. We had so many delicious pasta dishes. Since we have been home, I have wanted to recreate them but with less pasta. Sounds crazy, I know.
My mom would agree that this recipe is the best way to eat vegetables, mixed with creamy eggs and sprinkled with cheese and bacon. It’s definitely one of those ‘must have more’ type recipes. What it’s not is one of those try-to-hide-in-the-back-of the-fridge-till-it goes-bad-so-you-don’t-feel-guilty-about-throwing-it-away dishes. No way. You’ll be lucky if you even have leftovers!
Instant Pot To The Rescue
The thing that keeps me from making spaghetti squash more often is the amount of time it takes. Cooking squash in the oven seems to take for-ev-er! After a long day, the last thing I want to do is watch the oven timer for 45 minutes. After that, there always seems to be those few spots that are still hard as a, well, squash.
Enter the best invention ever, the Instant Pot. This entire recipe takes about 25 mins from start to finish. You heard right, 25 minutes my friend. With all that extra time, you can now mindlessly scroll Instagram! (not that your weren’t going to do that anyway)
We had this as a main dish with a small side salad but you could easily make it as a side for your favorite meat as the main attraction. Let me know what you think in the comments below. Thanks for reading!
