Spaghetti squash, also called vegetable spaghetti, noodle squash, vegetable marrow, spaghetti marrow, and squaghetti (the last name is my favourite one) can range either from ivory to yellow or orange in color with the orange varieties have a higher carotene content. The flesh is bright yellow or orange and when cooked, the flesh falls away from the fruit in ribbons or strands like spaghetti. It is very mild in flavour and makes a terrific low carb substitute for high carb wheat pastas.

This weekend we went to a relatively new local butcher on the Lakeshore called The Brant Street Butcher. It is a lovely butcher that opened late last year in an old bank building with a beautiful view of Lake Ontario. A perfect location for all the upcoming events that the City of Burlington boasts during the summer months like the free Sound of Music Festival on Father’s Day Weekend.

The Brant Street Butcher has a lovely selection of fresh organic meats, vegetables and a small selection of fine baked goods. Although the sausage we bought for this dish was a little more expensive they were HUGE and full of flavour. Definitely much better quality than your average grocery store Italian sausage so well worth the price.

I chose to use fresh grate pamesan rather than that bought in a jar. The flavour is much richer and I chose a smoked parmesan to add to the body of the dish.

      About the Author:

      Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
