The cooking frenzy continues! This dish packed some serious heat! Just invented ‘Spaghetti squash all’arrabbiata’
Arrabbiata means angry in Italian, it is not for the faint of heart.
To recreate this fiery masterpiece, you will need:
- 1 med sized spaghetti squash
- Fresh spinach
- Banana pepper rings
- Olive oil
Heat the spaghetti squash (uncut) for 2 minutes on high. This will help to cut it open more easily. Be careful, it will be a little hot- I grab a clean dish towel to help hold it when cutting. Once cut, scoop out the pumpkin/cantelope-like interior. Place the two halfs on a place face down (rind face up) with a little bit on water on the plate. Heat for an additional 8 mintues on high. This will steam the inside!
In a pan combine 1 tsp olive oil, 1tsp minced garlic, and 3 Tbsp banana pepper rings. This allows the pan to pick up the spicy goodness.
Take a fork to the squash and scrape horizontally across the rind. Spaghetti-like noodles will fall on the plate! (For anyone that hasn’t had spaghetti squash before, it’s so cool! As a pasta lover, I was amazed to have found this as a substitute..you can pair it with any sauce!)
Add spaghetti squash and 3 handfuls of spinach to pan. Stir for a few mins. Finish with cracked pepper! Yields 5-6 servings!
