Spaghetti squash is a delicious pasta alternative for when you want something a bit lighter. You can eat with just a little salt, pepper, and olive oil or spice it up with a pesto. This Spaghetti Squash Pasta by Claire Ragozzino is a really wonderful combination. However, there’s a delicate art to making a red sauce. A good sauce takes a minimum of 8-10 hours, beginning with the slow process of sweating the onions on a low heat.
8. Cocoa and Oat Biscuits with Rosemary and Flaky Sea Salt
