These Garlic and Herb Spaghetti Squash Boats are flavorful and delicious! They make for a perfect side dish or light dinner!
Do you guys ever feel like your to-do list is endless? And then as soon as you get one thing checked off you realize that there is now something else to add? That’s how I’ve been feeling lately. I finally get the kitchen cleaned and then realize that all the clothes are dirty. Then I get all the clothes washed and realize it’s already dinner time and I have no idea what to cook. I guess that is just what comes with being an adult and a parent?
Sometimes I just need a few moments to myself with a good book and big bowl of this Garlic and Herb Spaghetti Squash! I would say that I would like to be cuddled under a warm blanket while eating this meal, except that it was 80 degrees today and I want nothing to do with a warm blanket right now!
This recipe came to be because I had some leftover herbs from that super handy poultry pack of herbs with thyme, sage and rosemary. I still haven’t mastered gardening in the desert, but I do want to work on growing some herbs because those little packs can get expensive! So, I always get really excited when I see a pack of herbs that has 3 different kinds all in one. I was wondering what to do with the rest of the package when I saw all the spaghetti squash at the store and immediately knew I needed to pair them.
This recipe is really easy to make and so delicious! You could eat it as a side dish, or if you’re like me, you can happily eat it as your dinner 🙂 If you’re looking for more seasonal recipes this month, then today is your lucky day!
