One of my goals has been to get out of my food rut and try some new recipes. Usually, I can just menu plan and wing it based on what I feel like. The other night I cooked a paghetti squash that I had and decided to use a recipe from The Frog Commissary Cookbook I ran across while I was looking up recipes for our Dinner Club. This cookbook is one of my all-time favorites; it was a lovely present I might add from Miss Emily when she came to visit me.

Spaghetti Squash with Carrots, Red Peppers & Basil
