More Halloween naming fun with our Spaghetti Squash with Basil Kale Pesto. To some, ‘Kale’ might be spooky enough, but we like Brains with Slime Sauce…much more festive!
I love it because it’s one of the easiest dishes to make, ever. You just bake up the squash and whip up the pesto in the food processor and violá!
It’s great for fall when the squash is coming in and you can use kale and basil from the garden. We didn’t grow spaghetti squash this year, so this one is store boughr. But, our kale is still coming in a-plenty and our basil is rocking it in our Tower Garden, so we used those for the pesto.
In the pic, we have it on top all pretty, but I typically mix it in, giving the squash a nice greenish color. Perfect for the spooky season. We usually serve it with our Snackulas recipe (Tomato Basil Crostini), for that extra bit of garlicky spookiness.
Let us know what you think. We’d especially love to hear your favorite pesto combos…you can use just about any green and seed/nut combo out there!
