spaghetti squash

Hey, y’all!

It’s another food post! Should I just bag the whole I Do Things concept and rename this blog “JD’s Dumbass Emporium of Food and Medical Procedures”? You can get back to me on that.

Anyway, for about a hundred years my mom has been rhapsodizing about the virtues of spaghetti squash. I was skeptical, to say the least. To say the most, I was downright nauseous. I like spaghetti and I like squash but combining the two seemed like an abomination of flavor. How the hell does this:

squashes

become this:

spaghetti2

?????

“You just pull the squash tendrils off and serve it like spaghetti,” she’d say. “WITH SAUCE?” I’d ask incredulously. “Yes! It tastes just like spaghetti.”

How is this possible?

(Spoiler: it’s not.)

But then I saw this at the Pioneer Woman’s site:

squash

Yup. THAT is spaghetti squash. It looks good, doesn’t it?

So I made a deal with my mom. Prepare spaghetti squash with butter and cheese, and I will eat it with a totally open mind and open gullet. Spaghetti Squash Sunday was on the calendar, tho I kept postponing it out of terror.

But finally the day of reckoning came.

into-the-oven

But first!

pb-sandwich

I scarfed a PB sammy to coat my stomach.

backup-salad

I also brought along some back-up salad.

cutting-it-open

My mom did all the work while I watched and made throw-up noises.

cut-open-with-seeds

BLEEEUUURRRGGGH! We’re supposed to eat THAT? I could feel my mind and my gullet slowly closing.

mangled-squash

According to the Pioneer Woman’s recipe, you simply “use two forks to lift the strands out.” (Hacksaw and mallet not shown.)

on-the-stove

Surely anything tastes good with a pound of butter and cheese? Surely . . . ???

optimistic-bowl

Thank goodness we have cheery pasta bowls!

squash-in-huge-bowl

Hmmm. That’s a lot of work for a very little squash. Maybe it’s just as well.

JD-eats-spaghetti-squash

You can thank me that there were no more photos after this shot. Otherwise you would’ve seen a normally polite and well-mannered JD practically THROW UP at her mom’s kitchen table, eyes watering, face turning red, napkin fluttering, gag reflex . . . reflexing, GROSS OHMYGODWHY? and barely get that innocent-looking bite of stuff down her totally closed-up gullet, followed by emergency doses of back-up salad.

I tried.

My mom, to her credit, was not completely disgusted with me. “I’ll put yours in the fridge for later,” she said, as she gamely ate her portion. Well, some of her portion. Mostly she ate back-up salad.

And later she threw it all out.

And so, my friends, the moral is this: Enjoy your squash and enjoy your spaghetti. Just don’t let them have sex and make a spaghetti squash baby. But if you do, make sure you have plenty of back-up salad on hand.

    Oh ?

    I thought it was going to be real spaghetti served inside half a squash, with tomato and squash sauce – that would have been a real treat !

    But just squash-spaghetti is new to me – I really can’t imagine how it would go separately with tomato sauce.

    Well, I’ll take your word for it that it is not good !

    I love that even as an adult, your mother is managing to make you eat things you don’t want to.

    The only difference between being a kid and an adult in this situation, is that instead of hiding it in your napkin, you were allowed to “put it away for later”…

    Grown-up speak for “metaphorically hiding it in your napkin.” :)

    Ok you are braver than me. I will eat practically anything but I do not like squash.. and a spaghetti version sounds even worse. YUCK!

  4. 4 Grace

    I’ve made spaghetti squash, it is not something I am deeply enamored of tho I like any kind of squash. I do believe I roasted it first then de-stranded it. I could be wrong, it was a long time ago and obviously I wasn’t impressed or I would have been making it on a regular basis and remember how to cook it.

    My husband the vegetable hater will eat zucchini prepared any which way but he particularly likes it pickled. And actually that’s a misnomer because I don’t really pickle it, it’s just flavored with some vinegar – oh, never mind. You gotta eat to appreciate it…

    I like spaghetti squash, too (perhap the preparation barfing noises affected your gullet). I’m a huge fan of squash in general though. I don’t think it tastes like spaghetti and it’s not my favorite squash, but I’d eat it again no problem.

    Your description sounds an awful lot like my own attempts to get my teenage daughter to eat something she’s predecided she doesn’t want to eat.

    And similar results.

  7. 7 babs - beetle

    Well I was hoping you would say it was awful, because I think I would hate squash. I hate pumpkin and isn’t it the same family?

    The only way I can eat this type of food is as a soup – providing it liquidized beyond recognition and with plenty of seasoning!

    I thought that the butter and cheese may have done it for you though.

    oh, jd! spaghetti squash is not meant to taste like spaghetti! it is meant to resemble spaghetti noodles and taste like the yummy veggie it is. i don’t mean to be rude to your mom, but that is definitely not the way to prepare spaghetti squash. this squash is best when cooked in the microwave. just cut it in half length wise, remove the seeds and steam it in the microwave. then you take a fork and scrape the flesh…yes, the flesh, into a strings resembling spaghetti noodles. i prefer to serve this squash as a yummy veggie side dish with butter, salt and pepper. this is not my favorite squash, that is the patty pan. i prefer the summer squashes to the winter varieties. give this yummy veggie another try, but as a veggie, not a noodle substitute in spaghetti sauce or cheese!
    and ollie is snuggled on my lap. i did not show him the photos of the scary cheesy squash. and yes, i did give him a squeeze.

  15. 15 absepa

    Do you think you were disappointed in the squash because you had expected it to be more spaghetti-like? Or did it just taste bad? I will admit to being spaghetti squash-curious. I’ve liked most of the squash dishes I have tried, but I’m not interested in any type of squash soup. Liquified vegetables are not appealing to me.

  16. 16 dcr

    Your first mistake was ruining it with butter and cheese. You serve it with either a spaghetti sauce (a smooth type, not a lumpy one with bits of vegetables or meat) or plain, maybe with some fresh ground black pepper or paprika. Now, you could top it with grated parmesan cheese, but you don’t want to melt cheese in with it.

    Spaghetti squash is probably the best squash there is!

  20. 20 Christopher (AKA: CaJoh)

    I just had Eggplant Parmesan for lunch. I think it tastes a lot like spaghetti (mostly due to the fact that the sauce contains the same ingredients). I’ll have to post the recipe sometime so you can give that a try.

  25. 25 JD

    Jaffer: Well, that sounds a lot better than what I ate on that fateful day. Yes, PLEASE! Take my word for it!

    Jenn of Many Cabbages: Yeah, what is it with these moms? HA! Yes, how many times have I put something away for later, only to just throw it away anyway? Grown-up, indeed.

    carissa: I DO like squash, but this was just all wrong. Give me a nice green zucchini, sliced into coin shapes and sauteed in olive oil.

    Grace: That pickled zucchini sounds good! You just slice it and dump it in some vinegar? Chilled?

    Mary @ Holy Mackerel: Yes, we can definitely still be friends because now I can give YOU all my spaghetti squash. The Pioneer Woman’s recipes are so far above my skill level that I don’t even try them.

    Stephanie Barr: Yeah, I probably wasn’t quite as open-minded as I thought. Predecision. Yup. That’s what it was.

    babs – beetle: Yes! But don’t you like pumpkin pie? I will never again be able to eat spaghetti squash in ANY form. I just hope it didn’t ruin butter and cheese for me.

    cardiogirl: Perhaps we are just opposites when it comes to controversial foods. It DID look good, at least after it had been de-stranded and buttered and cheesed. Oh, but the texture was all kinds of wrong. And the taste . . . bleurgh.

    Buggys: Well, the squash itself looked rather suspect. Maybe we got a bad one. Or maybe I was so expecting it to taste JUST like spaghetti . . . and it didn’t . . . Yeah. Cross it off your list.

    LJ: You’re very welcome.

    Mom Taxi Julie: THANK YOU! I felt I had to add that. It was an innocent strand of cheese. I didn’t want anyone thinking that I eat hair.

    puglette: Oh, you give such a glowing endorsement of the spaghetti squash! I’m almost tempted . . . Please do not worry about offending my mom. But she DID say it tasted just like spaghetti, so let’s blame this all on her. I will consider your recommendation. Maybe if someone else cooks it? Oh, a BIG squeeze for Ollie! And tell him I would never dream of scaring him with scary cheesy squash.

    Ron: Aw, thank you. I do hope we can keep those two from procreating and bringing more of these monsters into the world. I LOVES me some pasta — really almost any kind, and this was a bitter disappointment.

    Pricilla: You are a very contradictory goat! Pumpkin is very good for you, so I’m glad you’re eating some form of vegetable. And I love zucchini, especially when it’s deep-fried and dipped in ranch dressing.

    absepa: It was a little of both. I could see from it’s texture that it wasn’t going to taste EXACTLY like spaghetti. And my mom didn’t finish hers either, so . . . No, I’m not really into squash soup, either. I do love tomato soup, but any other pureed vegetable isn’t gonna work for me.

    dcr: WHAT? The best? I don’t know. I like squash that you can slice not shred. And really? Spaghetti sauce? I just don’t see how. But you and Puglette have made me curious. I just MIGHT give it another try.

    Bingo: It does look good. But that’s about it, sadly.

    Shakespeare: Well, I’m glad you enjoyed it, because I certainly didn’t. Wait till I tell my mom about the tendrils. She’s been eating them ALL THESE YEARS!

    Katherine: I urge you to go to the link (Pioneer Woman) and check it out. We probably did something wrong. Also, I think our squash was rotten. Or see dcr’s and puglette’s comments, above. Do not give up on the spaghetti squash! (Altho I certainly have.)

    Christopher (AKA: CaJoh): No, it most definitely does NOT. I had eggplant parmesan once and loved it. I ordered it again and hated it. Please do post your recipe. I’m willing to give it another shot.

    Bernie: Oh, no! A lying bastard?! That sounds awfully severe. But he has definitely been lying to you, that bastard. Oh, and don’t tell him I said that.

    ann: I really do think something was wrong with our squash. But maybe not. The photo that inspired me really does look delicious. And our version looked very much like it. But the taste . . . bleurgh.

    Kathy: Finally, an explanation that makes perfect sense. Yes, that MUST be it. There’s no way this is supposed to be edible food. I feel like a fool.

    Sue: I’m sure I reacted just the same as your son’s girlfriend whenever my mom tried to explain it to me. “But how?” I would say. And now I know.

    I think your problem is that you had expectations on what it was supposed to taste like and then it didn’t taste like that so it sucked. Do you know what I mean? I’ll bet you would have liked it if you didn’t expect a spaghetti taste.

    We make our squash with just butter, salt and pepper. I’m confused with the cheese. Does your mom always add the cheese?

    I love vegetables of pretty much all kinds (except disgusting ones like asparagus, okra and artichokes), but I’ve never wanted to try spaghetti squash. Surely the fun of eating spaghetti is in its heavy, carbohydrate goodness? Strands of veg? I don’t think so. Uh-uh.

    moooooog35: slaps forehead. DANG! I’d forgotten all about that old saying. You’re right. My fault entirely.

    Jen: Now I could go for eggplant lasagna. It’s these strands I have a problem with. Probably needed more beer.

    Surfie: Yes, that counts! As long as there are still strands in the soup. If you decide to make this recipe, PLEASE let me know how you like it (e.g., if you made throw-up noises, etc.)

    Lin: I know EXACTLY what you mean. Tho I’m not sure I would’ve liked it if my mom had just said, “Here is some squash!” Something weird about the texture. Also I think our squash had passed its expiration date. The Pioneer Woman’s recipe called for a sprinkle of Parmesan, so we figured: sprinkle = handfuls. Perhaps that contributed to the problem.

    Daisy the Curly Cat: Oh, I think I would like pasta-stuffed squash! Much better than squash-stuffed spaghetti. And I like Cinnamon’s site, too. I’ll have to look that up!

    meleah rebeccah: That’s it! I would be willing to try it again (maybe) if it were prepared the “right” way, whatever that is. Oh, who am I kidding. I’ll never eat this stuff again.

    Grace: I’m on my way! It sounds good. If nothing else, I can force my mom to make it so if I don’t like it, I can blame her. YES! Go, garlic!

    Jay: It IS a lie, isn’t it?! And yes, “strands of vegetable” is just plain wrong. I, too, love most vegetables (except the yukky ones, of course), and this was not one of them. I only hope it didn’t ruin spaghetti for me.

  35. 35 Patricia (The other one...)

    First, I’d like to thank you for the picture of the actual spaghetti. My doctor politely suggested that I not eat ‘…quite so many carbs…’ which is a doctor way to tell you to lay off all that is delicious, fatty fatty two by four. Um, anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed the photograph and may have licked the screen once or twice.

    Sadly, my father-in-law is a chef. I say sadly, because he’s attempting to stretch my food horizons past where they ought to go. I’ve not yet ‘returned to sender’ any of his creations, but I have two words: fish soup. With not nearly enough of the fish removed for my taste. The next time it’s served, would you eat it so I don’t have to?

    I did, however, have similar results as you with my first (ONLY) attempt to eat escargot. But it was in a restaurant. I better get on that formal apology letter to Las Palmas Restaurant and all the patrons there that night. Maybe if I’d eaten a prepatory PB and J it would have worked out?

  36. 36 Anne

    It does taste more like spaghetti if you serve it with tomato sauce (like ketchup, it hides the taste of everything) but it doesn’t have the texture (maybe really overcooked spaghetti). I enjoy spaghetti squash but I don’t think I would try to pass it off as real pasta (or if I did, I wouldn’t succeed).

    So I guess it simply comes down to taste and texture! I encourage others to give it a try – you might like it and it is very cheap an filling.

    Patricia (The other one . . . ): ALWAYS eat a preparatory sandwich of your choice. That’s rule 1. After that . . . I think regarding your father-in-law, brutal honesty is the ticket. Tell him your doctor said “more carbs, less fish soup” and see what he says. Please have some real spaghetti. Doctor JD says it’s all right, just this once.

    Anne: No, you certainly would NOT succeed. The texture is the problem. Also the flavor. So after that, I don’t know what else to blame. My palate? Surely not!

    flit: Well, that’s being creative! I’m sure squash is much better for you than pasta, but I like mine breaded and deep-fried. I think that’s even healthier, somehow.

    Viveca: Yes. Taste and texture. Tho I was hoping for some validation from the blood type test. Interesting! Yes, everyone, please eat spaghetti squash so I don’t have to. It’s an all-win situation!

    Kathleen Kaufman: Oooh, careful there. This is a no-swear zone. Wait, no it’s not, damn it. I think “zucchini” needs another “c.” I’ll take zucchini over squash, altho I guess technically zucchini IS squash. But gimme some good ol’ carrots any day.

    Lauren: I considered having a second sandwich afterward, but the back-up salad did the trick pretty well. There is nothing worse than eating bad food. It makes me feel sad and hollow and wanting ice cream.

    Jenny: YOU DO? Oh, thank GOD! Finally, someone to eat all those mutant babies! So we apparently made a huge misstep with the cheese. If we do try this again, we will go with the popular condiments of s&p and butter. Or you can eat mine so I don’t have to.

    Katie: I think I would’ve been wise to treat it more like squash — which I mostly DO like — rather than think it was going to taste like spaghetti. Ain’t no way that was ever gonna happen.
