  • ½ onion chopped
  • 3 cups of broccoli rough chopped
  • 1 Tbl garlic minced
  • 2 Tbl butter

  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp cracked pepper
  • 1 Tbl garlic and peppercorn seasoning
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

  3. Add onion and cook till translucent.

  5. Stir occasionally and after 5 minutes add garlic.
  6. Add salt/pepper. Cook for 5 minutes and add peppers; stir to combine.
  7. Add cream and put heat to high stirring constantly.
  8. When the cream begins to boil, add the cheese and stir until on the thick side; about 5 minutes . DO NOT BURN!
  9. Add in garlic/peppercorn seasoning and reduce heat to simmer. Adjust seasonings if necessary.
  10. Cut open squash (watch it’s hot!) and remove seeds.
  11. Using a fork simply ‘shred’ the squash’s innards and it will look like spaghetti noodles.
  12. Transfer shreddings to a plate, add your vegetable mixture and top with additional cheese if needed.
