Ingredients

    1 large spaghetti squash
    12 oz coconut milk
    1 15 oz can pure pumpkin
    1/2 tsp dried rosemary
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    2 tbsp olive oil

Directions

1.Cook the spaghetti squash. This can be done in the microwave oven (cut it in half, poke some holes in the skin, lay one half face-down in a microwave-safe dish and nuke it for 9-11 minutes or so) or the conventional method. Poke holes in the spaghetti squash with a fork or knife. Bake at 375 degrees for an hour on a shallow pan, rotating once or twice.
2.Allow squash to cool and cut in half, lengthwise. Remove seeds and pulp.
3.Using a fork, remove the flesh of the squash, which will separate into spaghetti-like strands. Set aside.
4.In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil over low heat and add rosemary and garlic, stirring until fragrant. Pour in the can of coconut milk and the can of pumpkin and stir.
5.Turn the heat up to medium and cook until the sauce is warm all the way through. Id say you only need to cook this for 5-8 minutes or so, and then combine it with the spaghetti squash! Salt and pepper to taste

    Very Good
    I made this for dindin tonight. It was very good, but I like things a little spicier so I added some Indian spices and more garlic. Very Good! Not sure about the calories but Yummy! - 2/19/18

    Very Good
    I tried this years ago when it was first posted on Calmmindkitchen.com. I am so glad I came across it here as the website is no longer active and I had been searching for the recipe to no avail. This pairs nicely with grilled chicken or fish. For a little kick add a pinch of red pepper flakes! - 8/28/16
