Hot and Spicy Spaghetti Squash

I’m going to go ahead and be up front that I didn’t LOVE this…it was good…but not great. That said, please leave a comment for me on how to improve it. Spaghetti squash is one of my favorite ways to cut the carbs and fat!

  • asian spaghetti squashPrepare one medium spaghetti squash…
    • Pierce many times with a knife.
    • Microwave for 10-20 minutes, until soft.
    • Cut in half to cool.
  • While squash is cooking, in large skillet…
    • Saute in olive oil…
      • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
      • 2 minced shallots
    • Once softened, stir in…
      • 2 Tablespoons Hoisin Sauce
      • 2 Tablespoons Sriracha (less if you don’t love the heat)
  • Once squash is cool enough to handle, remove seeds and shred “meat” into skillet. Stir to coat. Heat through

Like I said, this was good but not great. Maybe a different Asian-inspired sauce? More garlic? Salt and pepper? This was an quick, easy, and inexpensive dish on a cold fall night, but I’m definitely contemplating ways for it to knock your socks off!
