spaghetti squash to try

Cut spaghetti squash in half, remove seeds, brush with olive oil, and roast face down for 35 - 45 minutes,,,,depending on size,
Cook until shell is soft with a poke...pokey test.
Tip: squash is easier to cut if microwaved for 1 minute...poke shell with fork first!

In the meantime, fry some bacon. 1/2 a pound?
In the residual grease, sauté some diced onion onion?
Add a bag of baby spinach.
Season w/ salt and pepper to taste. (Nutmeg?)
Add a dollop or 2 of ricotta cheese.
Stir and set aside. Dice bacon.

Use fork on squash to separate fibers to create "spaghetti" strands.
Add spinach and ricotta mixture.
Top with bacon and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
Return to oven until melted and hot all the way through.

Try w/o ricotta...substitute a pat or 2 of butter.

Note: squash, bacon, onion, and Parmesan make a really nice flavor combination. Spinach and bacon make a great flavor combination. The spinach adds protein and nutrients. Hadn't though to try spinach and spaghetti squash together.

Recipe was viewed on Tim Farmer's Country Kitchen, but at this time, was not available on website. Will check back.
