When A Dinner Fail Turns Into A Lunch Win

The plan for dinner was spaghetti squash with a ground turkey, zucchini and tomato sauce. The sauce turned out great. The squash, well see for yourself...

Yup, definitely doesn't look like spaghetti and I have no idea where I went wrong. It's not the first time I have made it but something did not go right tonight. Luckily the sauce went just fine on bow-tie pasta (and the boys were quite happy I didn't serve them this) but I didn't want to waste the squash. So Tristan suggested soup. Without a recipe, I decided to just wing it. It turned out delicious!! It was quick, the kids said the house smelled yummy and we now have a healthy lunch for tomorrow. It turned out so good, I thought I'd share...

I boiled some veggie broth and threw in some onion, carrots, apples, cumin, curry and salt. I let them cook until the carrots were soft. Remember, I had already roasted the spaghetti squash for 40 minutes at 425-degrees and scooped it out into a bowl of mush. 

I then threw it all (squash included) into the Vitamix in batches until it reached this consistency.

And that's it. Easy hearty soup in less than hour. Perfect for a chilly fall day. Enjoy!!
