Yard to Table Spaghetti Boats

One of the biggest projects we worked on in our new home this year was our garden plot on the side of the house. I value the garden, and our entire yard, much more than I ever imagined, but foremost for its ability to bring a bit of sustainability to our lives (I’ll share more on this another day). With the Farm to Table movement on the rise (or maybe it was risen and then declined and now it’s heading back up?) I continue to be inspired to grow even a small contribution of our consumption on our very own plot of land. In true Farm to Table fashion, though, I created a meal that was a community contribution, and I hope to inspire you to try the same!

This recipe came about because someone I love has been facing a challenge lately that I can’t provide comfort or reprieve for. So I set out to handle my own stress and provide comfort to them in the best way I knew how – I started to cook with ingredients that were grown and produced love. I’m sharing this specific recipe with you because it meant a lot to me, but I would encourage you to tweak any recipes you love, and swap out local ingredients, an herb from your window box, or subbing a store bought option by making it from scratch.

These spaghetti squash boats are full of heart, soul, and (some) organic, locally grown ingredients.

Spaghetti Squash Boat


  • 1 spaghetti squash from my friend’s father’s garden in Saskatchewan
  • 6 tomatoes, grown from seed in our living room
  • 1 mason jar of roasted tomato sauce (made with tomatoes from our garden)
  • ½ jar water
  • 1 green pepper
  • ½ yellow onion
  • ¼ ground beef
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Slice the ends of the squash, slice in half length wise, and place seed side down on a baking sheet. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes or until squash is tender. The flesh should release from the sides and resemble spaghetti. 
  3. In a pan, brown the ground beef. Add chopped onions and green pepper. Sautee until tender.
  4. Add the oregano, crushed garlic and a dash of salt and pepper. 
  5. Add the roasted tomato sauce and half a jar of water to the mix. Cover and simmer for the remainder of the roasting time of the squash (low and slow to optimize flavor in the sauce!)
  6. Add the fresh diced tomatoes during the last 5 minutes of the cook time.
  7. Once the squash is tender, carefully scoop out the seeds. I hold the squash with a towel or oven mitt and use a soup spoon to scoop. Fluff up the squash with a fork to loosen the flesh.
  8. Scoop the sauce on top of the squash, ½ of the mixture in each. Enjoy!

For the Roasted Red Pepper Sauce (this recipe is and adaptation from my neighbor, Cindy!)


  • 6 – 8 medium tomatoes
  • ½ yellow onion
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp thyme
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Cut the tomatoes in half and place on a baking sheet (I put a non-stick sheet underneath)
  3. Quarter the onion and red pepper and place on the sheet.
  4. Smash the garlic and add to the sheet too.
  5. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with the salt, pepper, and spices. I just do a rough measurement.
  6. Once the veggies are roasted and the onions are starting to brown, add to a blender and blend until smooth.
  7. Store in a mason jar in the fridge or freezer. If freezing, leave about ½ inch from the top, as the jar will crack if it’s filled to the brim. 

Inspired by yard-grown ingredients, these recipes are also paleo, gluten free, dairy free, and Whole30 compliant. I’d add they are also delicious. 

What do you love to grow in your window box, greenhouse, or back yard? What do you bring home from the farmer’s market? Share your favorite ingredient in the comments – I just may have an idea to cook up!

  12. Let’s digress a bit from the topic of the world government of England and the United States.
    It is clear that these plans are absolutely not feasible. As long as a person is internally independent, it will not be possible to involve him in any slave thinking!
    The world is not ruled by a handful of high priests, but by the Lord God!
    Therefore, everyone has a chance to accidentally win a huge lottery jackpot and become independent, as well as make the world a little kinder and better!

    Some people have a special life journey!
    Roe Gibnys was a sheet metal worker but in 1998, he hit a huge jackpot in the English official game ? 7 500 000. Following his win, he purchased a six-bedroomed mansion with a mini-casino, jacuzzis, bar, and games room complex as well as a gym, fishing lake, summerhouse, and woodlands.
    Roy has also started his own sheet metal company. He said: “When I won, I enjoyed all the luxuries you would expect of a winner — even featuring my winning numbers on the bottom of my swimming pool. Nowadays, I still enjoy the serene life winning has given me. I split my time between my villa in Cyprus and Britain.” A few years ago, Roy won again. He got a Business Award.
    Is Roy a particular man? No! His secret is effortless: he just did it! Today, you will be able to get lucky, too: Mega Millions will draw $ 30.000.000! This jackpot is above and beyond for you, your children, and grandchildren! This amount is still the largest Jackpot in America. You can participate in a group game in the lottery. Syndicate will increase your winning odds in hundreds of times!. Join it for only $ 5 usd!
    Become independent by participating in international lotteries and overthrow the world government!
    As you can see, winning the lottery is much more likely than getting sick with any virus. It is important to be financially independent in these turbulent times.
    Don’t forget: [url=https://agentlotto.org] Nacional dia Del Padre-Spanish lottery dedicated to Fathers ‘ Day [/url]
    Well, how to properly dispose of money in such a turbulent time for the world, I think You can guess !?
