Spaghetti Squash Carbonara
If you've ever wondered what to do with a spaghetti squash, or you're tired of serving it with marinara sauce, here's a recipe for you. It's special enough for company and simple enough for every day. Based on the classic spaghetti carbonara, spaghetti squash is roasted in the oven and finished with a sauce of garlic, leeks, white wine, Parmesan, and a bit of bacon.

You can make this vegetarian by omitting the bacon and using smoked salt in place of the sea salt (I suggest hickory-smoked sea salt) to get that smoky flavor. Or, you can simply omit the bacon entirely and use olive oil to cook the vegetables.
