Weird Spaghetti Squash


I kept on reading a version of this recipe over and over again and couldn’t decide if I wanted to try it so I did it my way.

1 spagetti squash

Salt and pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil

6 slices of thick Italian salami cut into very small pieces or pulse it in the food processor

One large diced onion.

I put that in the processor too.

3 tablespoon sweet red pepper

1/2  seeded jalapeno pepper

3 tablespoons red wine or apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons maple syrup

3 big handfuls of baby spinach

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

Cut the squash into one inch rings

Drizzle with salt and pepper

Place on parchment paper and roast for 30 minutes

Let cool

Take out the seeds and discard

Shred the squash off the hard skin

Discard the skin

Cook the salami, onion and peppers till the onion is soft and slightly brown

Take everything out of the pan

Keep the heat on high and add the vinegar

Scrape the bottom of the pan

Add the maple syrup

Turn down the heat and add the spinach

Cook one minute

Combine the squash, spinach and the meat mixture

Heat to rewarm everything together

Serve alone or with brie or goat cheese

This is a weird combination but I like it.
