Hard Work Generates Results

The weather here has finally creeped up a bit and it got me thinking about spring, so I went on a Google hunt and found this recipe for what the author called Spring Pasta. No idea why but the recipe knocked my socks off so I will listen to whatever they have to say. No for real though they could tell me that the earth was discovered to be flat and I would have to agree with them as I wipe this delicious pasta recipe from my beard.

  4. While your spaghetti squash is baking, pull out a large skillet and place under medium heat.
  5. Place a tablespoon of fat in your hot skillet then toss in your minced garlic.
  6. Once your garlic has become fragrant, add your diced onion.
