0 Bento #51 - Grilled Cheese & Spaghetti Squash

Sunday, January 3, 2010

This bento was an amalgamation of leftovers.  The grilled cheese was her lunch at a restaurant this afternoon, and the spaghetti squash was from tonight's dinner.  She didn't try any at dinner, and I'm sure she thinks she got away scot-free on that account, but no, she'll have a little surprise in her lunchbox tomorrow!  It's actually very, extremely delicious.

Bento #51 - Grilled cheese, sauteed spaghetti squash, carrot coins and grapes.

Sauteed Spaghetti Squash w/ Roasted Red Peppers

1 spaghetti squash, halved and seeds scooped out
1 jar roasted red peppers, drained (or do them yourself like me!)
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tbs Italian herbs
olive oil

Roast the spaghetti squash on a baking sheet slathered with olive oil, cut-side down on 400 for 35 minutes.  Let cool and shred with fork.

In a hot pan add a couple tbs butter and olive oil, sautee the garlic, then add the peppers and let them cook off some of the excess liquid.  Add in squash, and toss around gently.  Add herbs, and salt and pepper to taste.
