Mixing spaghetti squash with pasta seriously amps up the nutrition of any pasta dish!
Pasta, Capellini/angel hair, dry
(or 1 tsp garlic powder)
Extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt, fine
Parmesan cheese, shredded
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add a healthy pinch of salt. Cook angel hair pasta for 7-10 minutes, until al dente.
Meanwhile, in a large pan over medium-high heat, add olive oil, oregano, basil, garlic, and salt. Saute until fragrant for 3 minutes.
When pasta is cooked, drain it (but do NOT rinse it) and add straight to the pan.
Add squash and saute to heat everything through and incorporate everything. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve.
