Lol...if you guys want a good laugh, check out my old Buffalo Chicken Alfredo recipe. Hilarious that I ever thought it was acceptable to post that photo and expect people to be like "yum I should make that". Wouldn't be surprised if that page got zero hits. I actually thought about re-making the dish just to photograph it better...but then thought nah....it's too funny to take down. I mean jesus, it looks like I sloppily ate three quarters of the plate and decided to hastily snap a pic before slurping the rest down.
You know how everyone in the paleo/primal world is essentially married to the spaghetti squash meat sauce combination? I swear whenever I scroll through Instagram (which is more times a day than I care to admit), I'm hit with at least 3 food porn snaps of some deliciously saucey looking spaghetti squash platter. That is where the inspiration for this recipe derives. Spaghetti squash and meat sauce is pretty much a deconstructed version on this delightful pizza boat.
If anyone else just cannot get enough spaghetti squash in their lives, please make this! It's so simple and delicious. And if you don't like scallops, first recognize that you are weird, and then second go check out my recipe for Shrimp Scampi! Nothing like dumping a pan full of butter all over your plate of veggies and lean seafood...bring on the FAT!
Who says you can't enjoy pizza when you're paleo? Ok - well, this isn't REALLY pizza...but it's got all the flavor without the gut-irritating ingredients. This is a pretty customizable recipe - I just love black olive and 'roni pizza...if you don't then add whatever you're little heart desires. Sausage, peppers, you name it.
Not sure why I haven't thought of this sooner, because spaghetti squash, when slightly burned, looks exactly like the regular old potato hash browns I used to love so much. If you cook the squash strands in the right kind of fat (duck fat, grass-fed butter/ghee or bacon grease are prime in my opinion), salt and pepper them and serve next to a squirt of ketchup...it's pretty much the same thing...minus all the carbs and refined oil garbage. The trick to get them crisped up like the real thing is to wring out the spaghetti squash in a towel before putting it in a skillet.
This recipe is a keeper. It's very light (...if you consider a heavily buttered dish "light") and completely delicious. I'm trying to up my seafood game in a way that allows me to share easy easy easy recipes. For some reason, seafood has always been a purple unicorn in my mind. By that I mean it just always seemed really fancy and too hard and unrealistic for me to deal with.
