Spaghetti Squash with veggie sauce

Ingredients:
1 medium/large spaghetti squash
1 medium onion
1 small red pepper
1 cup fresh broccoli
½ cup fresh basil
½ cup whole black olives
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
2 tbsp. minced garlic
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. flour
1 1/2 c almond milk
1 package shredded cheese – Sargento Italian 6 Cheese Mix
12 oz chicken – cut into small pieces
1 c fresh kale
1 tbsp. olive oil
salt, pepper to taste

preheat oven to 400*F
cut your spaghetti squash in half and scoop out the seeds.
take a jelly roll pan and line with foil, coat with olive oil, brush both halves of spaghetti squash with olive oil – inside and out
pop into the oven for 35 minutes
there are SEVERAL ways to get the squash to it’s ready point, I just choose this one… it works for me, and it doesn’t leave my veggie mushy inside… nothing worse than mushy spaghetti squash. . . totally ruins the dish.
anyways

 

Pull out your food processor – throw in the broccoli, onion, olives, basil and pepper and chop it up pretty fine
throw your butter in a pan and melt it — and after it is melted throw in your processed paste and garlic.
sauté that up until desired done-ness.
take your kale and toss that into your pan
cook a few minutes more, mainly until the kale is nice and steamed
throw in your flour… stir very well, let cook for another minute or so, lower heat and add your almond milk (or whatever milk you choose to use)
make sure to stir that very well also.
throw in your shredded cheese and stir it up while it’s melting… after it’s melted, add your can of fire roasted tomatoes and stir well…

add in the spices you wish – salt, pepper, this, that, the other… I added some crushed basil leaves (because I didn’t have any fresh)
set aside
cook your chicken to your choosing – I cut mine up and seasoned with a garlic herb seasoning

shred your spaghetti squash into a casserole dish, cover with the sauce, put some chicken on there, and then throw some fresh kale and  broccoli on top

bake at 400 for 10 minutes

I am me. that's really all there is to know. I am still figuring out exactly all that entails, but I think it takes a lifetime to do so...
