This soup is so good I can’t stand it? I’m equal parts baffled and delighted at how something I’m not super-crazy about (a vegetable) can taste so amazing. I swear, when vegetables are alchemized into a soup, they positively sing.
For this soup, I decided an Italian accent was in order, since spaghetti squash possesses a neutral flavor, to say the least. One of my favorite Italian dishes, Cacio E Pepe, revolves around pasta. And since pasta has become an occasional, not regular part of my eating repertoire, I simply transferred the dish’s amazing flavor to cooked spaghetti squash, blitzed in the Vitamix and voila – an amazingly delicious, nutritious soup with Cacio E Pepe’s buttery, peppery flavor, minus the carb overload.
All you’ll need is a few simple ingredients to pull this off. I can’t sing the praises of a Vitamix highly enough, but if you don’t have one, a blender or food processor should be adequate. It’s just that nothing turns solids into velvety smoothness like a Vitamix, so put it on your ‘to do’ list if you haven’t already. QVC carries them and offers payment plans.
Hope you enjoy this soup – Spaghetti Squash is in season and at markets everywhere this winter!
