It’s the end of a season and a beginning of a new era here at Thompson Potato Farm. We are very excited to announce the launching of a brand new partnership. We have become one family and four proud owners of this farm as is indicated by our new road sign. It has always taken all four of us to operate and manage the many moving pieces of our business. Today we put together our experience, our expertise, our visions and our passion for our farm bring all of you the best that we can offer! You can visit “Our Story” to learn more about who we are and where we came from.
Spaghetti squash is one of the more unfamiliar and least understood squashes of the squash family. Once it’s cooked, the flesh can be scraped out in long strands that are very similar to spaghetti noodles. It is delicious cooked and eaten on its own. However, the real fun lies with what you can do with the cooked squash. You can do anything with spaghetti squash that you can do with pasta. This squash can bring out the real creative side of you in the kitchen!
I have developed 4 simple recipes to showcase this vegetable grown by our sons John and Curtis. The squash is available for purchase at the farm door. “Basic Spaghetti Squash” is the recipe that you need to cook the squash. “Lasagna Spaghetti Squash” utilizes traditional lasagna ingredients such as ground beef, tomato sauce, cottage cheese and mozzarella cheese. “Garlic Shrimp Spaghetti Squash” is a heavenly mixture of shrimp, garlic, parmesan cheese and alfredo sauce. “Vegetarian Greek Salad Spaghetti Squash” uses fresh spinach, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes and black olives to create a fun play on a Greek salad.
