Spaghetti Squash CasseroleThis time of year is wonderful with the variety of winter squash that is available at all the supermarkets and farmer’s markets. Mountains of acorn squash, hubbard squash, butternut squash, pumpkin and spaghetti squash are everywhere. Spaghetti squash are one of my favorites with its sweet, tender flesh and spaghetti appearance.

I picked up this great cookbook from Five Below, the superstore chain that sells nothing over $5. It has a collection of 200 recipes from some of the nation’s most popular magazines. This is an adaptation of a recipe from that book. This made a great side dish for Thanksgiving and will just as easily do the job for Christmas.

In a saucepan, combine butter and flour. Fry until golden brown and the raw smell of the flour is gone, 2-3 minutes

Add milk, poblano and salt. Simmer for a few minutes until it thickens, about 3 minutes. Leave for 15 minutes to let the poblano infuse its flavor into the milk.
