There Is Nothing Better In Life Than Friends Gathering Over

There is nothing better in life than friends gathering over food (even if you are maintaining a responsible social distance). ⁠

And I love sharing this amazing Spaghetti Squash Salad recipe from a dear friend of mine. It’s yummy, colorful, and good for you! ⁠

Remind your kids that spaghetti doesn’t always have to be made with wheat (pasta)—nature makes its very own version of “pasta” in the form of delicious and fun spaghetti squash!⁠

– 1/2 cup walnuts⁠
– 2 large spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise and seeds scraped⁠
– 3 tablespoon apple cider wine vinegar⁠
– 1 lemon, zest only and 1 tablespoon lemon juice⁠
– 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme⁠
– 1 pinch crushed red pepper⁠
– 2 tablespoon tarragon, chopped (optional)⁠
– 1/3 cups olive oil, plus more for drizzling⁠
– 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (omit if dairy-free)⁠
– 3 tablespoon parsley, chopped⁠
– Salt and Pepper, to taste⁠

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread the walnuts in a pie plate and bake for about 5 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer to a plate and let cool.⁠

Arrange the spaghetti squash halves cut sides up on a baking sheet. Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for about 50 minutes, until the squash is tender.⁠

Let squash cool. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, lemon zest and lemon juice, thyme, crushed red pepper, and tarragon, if using. Whisk in the olive oil; season with salt and pepper.⁠

Working over a large bowl, using a fork, scrape out the spaghetti squash, separating the strands. Pour the dressing over the squash and toss to coat. Add the feta and pine nuts; mix well.⁠
