So there was this video recipe I saw all over Facebook. It was a slow cooked spaghetti squash, finished off like a true pasta. The reviews were raving. I have always wanted to cook spaghetti squash and I needed to get back to this Fat Kid Friday deal, so I thought….PERFECT. Everyone claimed it tasted just like real pasta and that you could sneak a veggie to your kids. I thought, well this will be great…….well here is my review.
Ingredients: 1 Spaghetti Squash. 4oz. Cream Cheese. 2 cups frozen peas. 5 pieces of bacon. Parmesan cheese. Salt and Pepper.
Poke holes in the squash and put in the crock pot with 1 cup of water for 3 hours.
Once the 3 hours is getting close to being over, dice bacon up and fry it. And do actually 6 pieces, because your fat ass will eat like an entire piece “just taking a quick bite.”
Listen to the hardship of an almost 2 year old
Take out squash. Cut in half. Take the top layer out with the seeds and throw it away. Then scoop out the rest and put back in the crock pot (do not remove the water!!!)
Add cream cheese, bacon and peas. Let cook for anther 45 minutes.
Let your kids watch creepy play dough Youtube videos because you are that kinda mom sometimes.
Mix all together and serve. We paired it with a salad and some garlic bread.
So here is how dinner began……..”Hey guys, it is pasta! Eat up!”
Here is how it ended…..IN FUCKING TEARS FOR EVERYONE INCLUDING ME!!! This recipe was great….for Matt and I. The kids hated it. They thought it was so gross. And it wasn’t at all. But they were being super annoying and dramatic. We are sticklers for finishing dinner and that was not happening. Everyone was crying, yelling and throwing fits. I had to excuse myself because I was so irritated (hence my tears.) I would say go for it with this recipe, but for real, it does NOT taste like pasta! Those little punks will know!!!
