Ohhhhhhhhh, now I get it!

After all my pontificating about what a let-down 'Vegetable Spaghetti' was I simply had to cook it! Now it all makes sense. The chunks I'd cut the flesh into got made into a curry and, low and behold, look what happens...


It breaks down into strands that look like - that's right kids - SPAGHETTI! ha! That'll teach me to waffle on :P

The curry I made was this recipe: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/3982/tomato-squash-and-spinach-curry

I used home-grown tomatoes too - windowsill-ripened, of course! :) It is mighty delish! Something that could almost be made totally from lottie veg. I added some natural yoghurt this time but creme fraiche works well too. Do give this recipe a go. I've already made it with patty pans, but courgettes, pumpkins, sweet pots, marrow, any squash or even spuds would work.

I didn't know that about vegetable spaghetti either.

It might be that it's dangerously close to lunchtime but that curry looks very tempting! Definitely one to add to my growing list for next year. Also love it when an entire meal comes together from veg patch harvest!

Since you apparently missed the "instructions" for preparing spaghetti squash the "standard" way, here's a link for the times you might want to do something other than making curry

Thanks for the curry recipe, I'm always on the look-out and that will get rid of some of the tom and squash glut!

And that will teach me not to read all of your posts before replying! LOL
