Love this option as a way to feel like you're eating pasta, but getting your veggie dose instead!

Instructions:

1. Cut spaghetti squash widthwise into 2 inch segments, making sure to remove the seedy inside.

2. Set on parchment paper-lined baking sheet and drizzle both sides with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake about 40 minutes until tender at 400 degrees F.

3. Cook bacon at medium heat on stove until crispy, then remove from pan. Remove most of the grease, leaving about 1 Tbsp in the pan.

4. Increase heat to medium/high, and pour in a dash of wine. Scrape and stir with a wooden spoon to get up all the tasty fond. adding more wine as it reduces down. Cook about 1 minute, then reduce heat to low.

7. Mix in 4 to 5 cups fresh spinach, a handful at a time, until leaves have shrunk.
