Spaghetti Squash Lasagna
Image by jessamyn
This is a simple, though messy, recipe. I’ll include the one I made but you can basically change it up a bunch of different ways.
1 spaghetti squash – poke a few holes in it bake in oven at 375° for about an hour
tomato sauce – mix 1-2 cups crushed tomatoes with some sauteed garlic and onions. Add basil, oregano, parsley, salt, pepper to taste. Simmer about 20 minutes. Add some brown sugar if it’s too acidic.
Once the squash is out of the oven, cut in half and let cool. Remove seeds and scrape the squash out of the skin with a fork into a large bowl.
Mix squash + tomato sauce + 1/4 cup parmesan cheese & pour into lasagna pan. Top with breadcrumbs, more parmesan and a few tablespoons of grated cheese. Bake in 375° oven for 30-ish minutes. Broil for last five minutes to get top browned.
Makes six-ish servings.

Chimichurri Sauce Recipe
By the request, I think I am obliged to explain.
This definitely does not look like Soba. But I was trying to eat this noodle in the same way (well at least after I finished my dough, I planned to eat with my cold noodle sauce at first), i.e. dipping noodles in cold sauce and sucking in.
It begins with the noodles. I tried to make noodles on my own for the first time, you can see the finished dough here. It is yellowish. Why, because I ran out of flour.
The recipe says 250g water with 8g salt. So I measured one cup of water. I immediately knew it’s not going to work, I didn’t have enough (high gluten) flour. So I dumped half cup then added 4g salt. (Actually I just guessed for 2cc of salt, I have no idea how heavy salt is).
I kept adding more flour from the bag, but it’s still so moist after the bag was emptied. I checked the pantry, there is one and a half bag of mixed flour for deep frying batter. But I couldn’t use it, it contains cheese and I am pretty sure the result would be very weird.
The only option I had was Soybean Powder. Yes, soybean. :-S I hate that thing’s smell. It has strong smell and very strange flavor, but I have to use it. I think I used half cup of soy bean powder to finish the dough.
* 120cc (~half cup) water
* 4g salt
* 150g+ flour. I think
* Soybean powder
Serves two. Boiling for 5 minutes, depending on the thickness. Adding carrot and cucumber strips if you like, but I don’t think soba has those.
* Soy sauce
Just mix them to your best taste. (I don’t know what soba’s dipping sauce tastes like, I just well make in own my own)
If you don’t have soy sauce, I think any vinegar-based sauce might work, but don’t add any oil. It has to be light. You don’t have Mirin, use sugar. You might need to boil your sauce in order to dissolve them.
* Southern Ice Tea
Make sure they are cold when you serve.
I have to say the result turned out pretty good, the noodle is a little bit chewy. (Again, I don’t think soba tastes chewy.) The soy bean powder smell wasn’t that strong.
