This month’s food photography challenge in the food photography group I’m in was for veggies. Uncooked and cooked. My husband has been on a low carb diet for awhile…and I have to say I’m really missing our pasta. Then I recently discovered spaghetti squash…
I can’t believe how yummy it is! I slice it in half lengthwise, place it sliced side down in a glass pan with a bit of water and bake it in the oven for about 45-60 minutes. Then just scoop/scrap out the “meat” of the squash with a fork. Makes wonderful “spaghetti” noodles. Here it is with a marinara and sausage sauce. It has a wonderful nutty flavor and texture.
I also made the squash up and then heated the “spaghetti” noodles in a bit of olive oil and italian spices. Splashed on a bit of balsamic vinegar. That was excellent too. My new favorite veggie. Spaghetti Squash.
As an aside, my camera was in the repair center to get the focus fixed on it…hopefully… I used my backup Canon 40D on these photos and once I got my groove back with it, I will say the old girl still does me proud. A bit weak in the higher ISO department, but I still love that camera. I did have to steal it back from my husband though. He’s been using it. Oops!
