Spicy Spaghetti Squash and Bacon

Submitted by: LEDANSER


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 pound spaghetti squash, cooked
    3 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch strips
    2 tablespoons thinly sliced garlic
    1 to 2 tablespoons chopped shallots
    1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 large egg
    1/4 cup chicken stock
    1/4 to 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, as desired

Directions

For spaghetti squash microwave method: With sharp knife, make several deep slashes in squash (this is necessary to keep it from exploding).
Cook on high in 5 minute increments, turning 1/4 turn each time fro 15-25 minutes (according to size of squash).
When squash is done, it will be soft when squeezed.
Slice in half, remove seeds, and pull "spaghetti" strands free with a fork.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the bacon over medium heat and cook until crisp. Add the garlic, shallots, pepper, and salt and cook, stirring, until fragrant and the garlic is soft but not brown, about 1 1/2 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the egg and chicken stock, and squash, stirring quickly until the mixture thickens, but the egg does not scramble.

Divide the spaghetti among plates or large shallow bowls, sprinkle cheese to taste over the top of each serving, and serve immediately.
