Roasted Spaghetti Squash Hash: Makes 4 servings INGREDIENTS:
4 cups roasted spaghetti squash
8 thin slices yellow onion (1/2 c)
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground nutmeg (or pepper)
1/2 tsp salt (optional - if needed)
1 Tbs & 1tsp olive oil
Start out by preheating oven to 400 degrees.
Poke squash with a sharp knife in several spots
Roast squash for 20 minutes
Remove squash from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes
Slice in half, scoop out the seeds and then return to oven to roast for another 20 minutes.
When cooled enough, use a fork to scoop out strands until you have 4 cups - reserve any excess for another use (spaghetti squash freezes great!)
Spread out on a sheet pan or tea towel to dry out a little - the drier it is the crispier it will get in the next step.
Heat a large, non-stick skillet to medium-high heat.
Start off by sautéing the onions for a few minutes, until they begin to turn translucent.
Then, add the spaghetti squash threads to the pan.
Add cayenne, garlic salt and nutmeg and stir.
Continue to cook until the squash starts to crisp up and turn golden brown.
