Spaghetti Squash Lasagna. Gluten free, Healthy, Incredibly Labor Intensive.

Yesterday I was talking to my mom on the phone (asking for a phone number because, you know, I am a ditz and recently lost my cell) and I told her I'd started cooking two hours ago and probably had another two hours to go.

She asked if I was unwell.

Not so much, I was just making spaghetti squash lasagna which first requires making homemade pasta sauce and preparing spaghetti squash. Then you cut up lots of vegetables and layer it all with cheese. What was supposed to be one lasagna turned into three, and I now have enough food to last until the end of days (and a huge thank you to my boyfriend who put it all away). 

What's your favorite labor intensive food? Do people think you're crazy when you make it? Is it worth it?

  1. I enjoy making a Turkey Pot Pie. Cooking a turkey breast in the oven with a homemade herb spice butter. Then cutting up all the veggies, cooking them together into a rue, then adding in stock. (Stock was previously made from the last roasted chicken) Fresh made crust to top all the diced veggies and turkey...then bake! All in all about 3 1/2 hours. Worth it!
