Picked up a good recipe for Spaghetti Squash and Greens today. Looking at tweeking it a bit to fit my tastes.  Once I have tinkered with it tomorrow I'll post my version.

Okay it took a minute for me to sit down and post this but here we go. Spaghetti Squash with greens.

1 med Spaghetti Squash
1 TBSP Extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup freshly shredded Parmesan or Romano cheese
Sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 9 ounce bags fresh spinach
1 lb sliced mushrooms
1 lb Italian sausage (Removed from casing)

Prepare the spaghetti squash by slicing it length wise and removing seeds and stringy bits in the center. Place in a lightly greased (I use PAM) baking dish cut side down and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. Take out of the oven and set aside to cool for about 25 to 20 minutes.

Heat a large skillet and brown the sausage (Make sure it is cooked thoroughly remove and set aside. Saute mushrooms until done and remove. Wipe the pan to remove the oils and add the Shooms and sausage back into the pan. Add the spinach by handfuls to wilt constantly tossing with the other ingredients this will be very quick.

Remove the pan from the heat and and finish the squash by using a fork the scrape out the strands into a large mixing bowl. It helps if you use a potholder or towel to handle the squash. Drizzle the strands with the olive oil, salt, pepper and 1/2 of the chease. Toss well and transfer to serving bowl or platter. Sprinkle with half of the left over cheese. Top with the mushroom Spinach mixture and sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top.

It is delicious. The original recipe called for 9ozs of spinach only, but that wasn't enough spinach for me.

Thanks for sharing it.Actually you can do the squash in the microwave if you want.  Place the Squash halves in a microwave safe dish (Cut side down) cover with plastic wrap, vent one corner and nuke on high for 7 to 10 minutes but I have found that this method works best doing each half separately.   For me by the time I got through all that I can just bake it and be done.

My super-healthy, super-cheap, super-easy, super-soup:

Quantities are in parts:

1 brown rice
1 green split peas
1 onions chopped
.5 carrots chopped
8 water
.33 olive oil
.1 garlic powder
.1 hot sauce
.1 low sodium soy sauce

Combine all ingredients except for the sauces in a rice cooker; or a crock pot; or a pot which has been placed inside a heavy aluminum pan on the stove over low heat.

Bring to boil, stir, cover, and simmer for many hours, adding additional water as necessary. This starts to get really good after about twelve hours. Add soy sauce and hot sauce to taste.

I like to eat this with some toasted sourdough bread, sometimes sprinkling it with parmesan cheese or some butter.

Mmmmm... yum... and it looks like it came right out of the Lexx's food dispensary...

If I wasn't trying to loose some weight, this would be really tempting.

Chocolate Lasagna

INGREDIENTS

1 package regular Oreo cookies (Not Double Stuff) – about 36 cookies
6 Tablespoon butter, melted
1- 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons cold milk
1- 12 ounce tub Cool Whip, divided
2 – 3.9 ounce packages Chocolate Instant Pudding.
3 1/4 cups cold milk
1 and 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

1. Begin by crushing 36 Oreo cookies. I used my food processor for this, but you could also place them in a large ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin. When the Oreos have turned into fine crumbs, you are done.
2. Transfer the Oreo crumbs to a large bowl. Stir in 6 tablespoons melted butter and use a fork to incorporate the butter into the cookie crumbs. When the butter is distributed, transfer the mixture to a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Press the crumbs into the bottom of the pan. Place the pan in the refrigerator while you work on the additional layers.
3. Mix the cream cheese with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add in 2 Tablespoons of milk, and sugar, and mix well. Stir in 1 and 1/4 cups Cool Whip. Spread this mixture over the crust.
4. In a bowl, combine chocolate instant pudding with 3 and 1/4 cups cold milk. Whisk for several minutes until the pudding starts to thicken. Use a spatula to spread the mixture over the previous cream cheese layer. Allow the dessert to rest for about 5 minutes so that the pudding can firm up further.
5. Spread the remaining Cool Whip over the top. Sprinkle mini chocolate chips evenly over the top. Place in the freezer for 1 hour, or the refrigerator for 4 hours before serving.

I don't know about grilled brussels sprouts... might be good, but as a sometimes-vegetarian I've got a crisp memory of going to a meat eater's bbq where we were promised vegetarian fare... which turned out to be blackened eggplant... inedible, but probably an excellent source for carbon black...

I do eat fish though, and though I'm not sure it qualifies, I'd say probably the spiciest thing you can put on -- grilled oysters -- are totally good. We get the big ones and put them flat side up nestled between the rails of a grill. Cook the poor bastards alive! Pull em off with oven mitts when the shells look a bit chalky and put 'em aside to cool for a bit... careful not to spill the (exact word is escaping me... it's not nectar, but close... "flavored water" serves).

Various possible condiment toppings are suitable... or none at all.
