Guys, I've got nothing. I'm totally drained. I can't believe it's only Tuesday. Tomorrow's Halloween. My house is a disaster. The only things I'm holding on to are my mornings at the gym and cooking. Everything else has pretty much fallen to the wayside.
I made this yesterday for breakfast, of all meals, and it was fantastic. I'm rediscovering spaghetti squash. It's been a while!
Cheesy Spaghetti Squash with Ham and Peas
Yield 1 serving
Cheesy Spaghetti Squash with Ham and Peas it a giant plate of awesome. Creamy spaghetti squash, meaty ham and the pop of sweet peas. It's a marriage made in heaven!
- 2 triangles of White Cheddar Laughing Cow
- 1oz Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 4oz ham cut into cubes
- ⅔ cup frozen peas (93g)
- 1 small spaghetti squash (flesh about ~350g cooked)
If your spaghetti squash is raw, pierce it a few times and place it in the microwave in 3-minute increments until it softens when pressed.
While the spaghetti squash is cooking, mash the cheese wedges into the almond milk to make the "sauce." Set aside.
Once the squash is softened, cut it in half, scrape out the slimy seed part, and then flake the flesh out with a fork. Set aside.
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high. Warm the ham and peas in the skillet. Add the spaghetti squash and toss it with the peas and ham. Pour the sauce mixture on top and toss until everything is coated and warmed through, about 2 minutes.
- You could of course just use pre-cooked spaghetti squash that you have leftover. I just happen to have the perfect size squash to make this from a raw one.
- If you do you use a whole squash weigh out the flesh. It could vary greatly affecting the nutritional information.
- I've made this with Shirataki noodles in place of the squash and it's super yummy! If you are looking for a faster, easier meal.
- I buy thick cut "breakfast ham" or ask my deli department for 2-3 slices of whatever ham is on sale cut thick to make my cubes. It's great for dishes like this or this or omelets.
