Spaghetti Squash Pasta and Zucchini Salad

Remember these veggies?? 

Well we got more of them! 
I made some new meals and side dishes with them already, but this time wanted to try something new again. 
First stop: Zucchini Parmesan Salad.

1 medium zucchini
zest and juice from 1/2 lemon
2 tablespoon olive oil
pinch salt and freshly cracked black pepper
a dash of basil (or a handful of fresh leaves if you have them!)
a block of parmesan cheese (And Don’t worry, I am not going to use the whole block)
1. Make the lemon vinaigrette- in a mixing bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, lemon zest, and extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
2. Using a vegetable peeler, shave the zucchini into ribbons. You should stop the peeling when you see the “core” and “seeds” of the zucchini. Place the zucchini ribbons in the mixing bowl; toss them with the lemon vinaigrette gently.
3. Add basil and mix them with the zucchini. Top with shaved Parmesan cheese and some more freshly cracked black pepper. Serve. Enjoy!!

Then came time for spaghetti squash pasta! 

1 spaghetti squash
pasta sauce of your choice
parmesan cheese

1. Bake the spaghetti squash. I have a weak wrist that doesn't enjoy cutting large uncooked veggies, so I poked holes all over the squash and put it on a baking sheet in the oven at 350F for approx. an hour.
2. Add pasta sauce. I usually make my own (the hour of baking would provide ample time for this!), but this time I just added a pre-made one.
3. When spaghetti squash is baked (should be soft to the touch with a fork), cut it in half. Scoop out the seeds and discard them. Then scoop up the delicious spaghetti squash noodles! Serve with sauce. Sprinkle parmesan on top. Enjoy!!

This made for another delicious fresh garden meal!
The spaghetti was actually SUPER filling too - I was surprised and definitely unable to eat my whole meal. 
I think everyone (except me) may have eaten this before, but if not, give it a try!
