Recipe that uses both broccoli and spaghetti squash?

jbeaux Mar 19, 2007 12:21 PM

I'm trying to use up my remaining vegetables tonight before my new basket arrives from our local organic farm tomorrow. Anyone have a good recipe that includes broccoli and squash together, preferrably something light? I've thought of vegetable soup, but am in the mood for something a little more interesting.

    Just roast the spaghetti squash, and fork as usual and serve with a tomato sauce with the broccoli added. Or you could skip the tomato sauce and just do an olive oil, garlic, broccoli sauce with parmesan cheese. I love parmesan cheese on spaghetti squash.

      I'd steam the broccoli & nuke the squash, pour a little warmed vinagrette or Caesar style dressing over top and grate on some parmesan over top, S&P and toss. Add some toasted pine nuts if you have them. It's one of my favorite meals.

        I do a cold salad with spaghetti squash from this recipe: http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/ro...

        You could substitute brocolli for the cucumbers (and leave off the salmon) and it would be tasty.

          The Food & Wine salad looks very tasty, and light, too. I've decided to roast a chicken tonight, so it'll be nice to have something cold and citrusy alongside. Thanks.

            You could make a chunky broccoli sauce for the squash - basically a pesto recipe using broccoli. It's how I use my broc once it goes a little soft.

              Agreed. Lora Brody has a recipe. She steams broccoli (then pan fries it, a step I omit) then puts it in the processor with juice of a lemon, clove or two of garlic and 1/4 cup evoo. Process, mix with noodles (or squash) and shave some cheese on top. My kids love it.
