OK here goes Spaghetti squash casserole with crispy Proscuitto Ingredients: 6 cups spaghetti squash, cooked and shredded 1 Tbl olive oil 1 tbl garilc minced 1 cup non fat Buttermilk 1 cup 1% milk 3 tbl flour 8 oz sargento reduced fat, Mexican 4 cheese 1/2 cup part skin ricotta cheese salt and pepper to taste 4 thin slices of proscuitto
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
I cook my squash, by cutting in half removing seeds and inverting into pan of water and roasting at 375 degrees for 30 min, then flip it over and finish roasting another 30 min. Cool and shred.
meanwhile I cook the proscuitto, in the same temp oven until crisp about 20 min. Crumble when cool and set aside.
Mix the squash and the ricotta cheese,
Heat oil in a pan and sautee the garic until golden, add flour 1 Tbl at a time to make a light roux. Whisk in the milk and stir until thickened. (This step is very imoprtant, it stabilizes the milk, if you don't let it thicken the mixture will curddle when you add the buttermilk) Whisk in the Buttermilk, and let get a little thick, add 4oz of the cheese, s&p to taste. Pour over the squash and mix. Add mix to a casserole dish and bake for 30 min until bubbling. Sprinkle remaining cheese and crispy proscuitto over and broil until browned.
OMG-my mouth is watering, I might have to make a batch soon. It is a great sub for mac and cheese.

This Lamb & Canellini Bean Stew is really good. The recipe makes a lot and it freezes wonderfully but you could cut it down if you didn't want to make so much. I make it in the pressure cooker but wrote the stove top directions and it could be cooked in the crockpot as well
4-5 cups of Chicken broth 2-3 cups of Peanut butter 1/4-1/2 honey 2-3 packets unflavored Gelatine
Bring the Chicken broth, PB and honey to a simmer in a large pot. It should come together to a velvety smooth texture, like a peanut soup. bring it up to almost a boil and see how thick it gets before adding gelatine, because the PB can thicken it a lot too depending on amount and brand. Then mix the gelatine with some cold water to dissolve it and add it to the "soup". Still well to avoid lumps, (not that the dogs would probably care). turn off the heat and stir the soup occasionally until the right thickness-like a loose pudding. I pour it into a measuring cup and pour into clean marrow bones. Let stand at room temperature until cool, then refrigerate over night. Once they are cool and fully set, you can freeze them.
Marrow Bones: Buy marrow bones of appropriate size for your dog. I boil them with all the veggies to make beef stock for humans. I cool the bones which essentially are marrowless. then I take foil and I carefully cover one end of the bone usually try to indent the foil a little into the cavity to get a good seal. Then I stand them on end and fill them.
Challenges: getting a good seal on the foil. Getting the right consistency of the soup, too liquidy and it will defiantly leak. Too thick and it solidifies quickly. I stand the bones in a 9x11 in pan, and this amount fill about 24-30 bones of varying sizes. once I have an empty pile, I run them through the dish washer and refill.
Sorry that is as specific as I can get. Have fun and play with it. I have not experimented with other flavors..

Funny I was was adding this to tracker and even though in SP recipe it did not come up, and when I went to the recipe page it did not come up, but if you search Spaghetti Squash and scroll down you will find it.

So in homage to my new Veggie, I made for breakfast this morning a recipe for Spaghetti Squash pancakes that I found here on SP. they were yummy and I will make them again, but I think I would add chives or some additional flavoring. I topped with a poached egg. nice filling way to start the day with a healthy boost of veggies.
