Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Boats

The reason so many people use it as a pasta substitute is because of the way the flesh becomes stringy, resembling spaghetti noodles (i.e. the name spaghetti squash) sans the fancy spiralizer equipment.

Squash Blossom & Ricotta Pizza

One of my favorite recent discoveries is squash blossoms.

Whenever I see them hit the stalls in summer I have to grab some – they are just too pretty to pass up.
