This is a review of the Spaghetti Squash “Carbonara” from FoodNetwork.com.
We saw this recipe from Emeril Lagasse on http://www.foodnetwork.com.
We thought it was a really cool idea so we wanted to try it ourselves. For the exact recipe, go to http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/emeril-lagasse/spaghetti-squash-carbonara-recipe2.html. The recipe was pretty strait forward and made a wonderful meal. It was the perfect meal for a cool late fall evening.
Here’s basically what we did:
Bake the spaghetti squash in a salted and peppered pan for about an hour. We also added water and covered before it went in the oven. When it is done, you can shred the inside of the squash with a fork or spoon and it will come out like spaghetti.
Then we cooked half of a pound of chopped up bacon. When cooked, we spooned out the grease and added a shallot, some garlic and white wine. We reduced the wine down until it was gone. This part smelled awesome. The combination of the bacon and white wine was very nice.
In another bowl, we mixed up eggs, parmesan and parsley.
Finally, we added the bowl of eggs to the pan and then tossed in the spaghetti squash.
