Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Pinto Beans and Enchilada Sauce

Alert!  This Mexican-flavored spaghetti squash with pinto beans and enchilada sauce causes purring noises while eating. Really. I’ve heard those contented purrs from across the dinner table! Brick-red chile-spiced beans and golden spaghetti-like strands–this is a gorgeous purr-worthy vegetarian meal.

When cooked, the insides of the oval yellow squash can be separated with a fork into yellow strands that resemble thin spaghetti pasta. Yay for vegetable spaghetti! It’s a perfect low calorie, low carbohydrate vehicle for most any sauce you would serve with pasta. This is my favorite way to eat spaghetti squash!

Caramelized Mushroom and Arugula Pizza Bianca

Who can resist an eatable platter, like a thin crispy whole wheat crust, topped with golden-sautéed mushrooms, fresh goat cheese, crunchy walnuts, garlicky olive oil, and a tangle of peppery arugula?

Did you notice I didn’t say anything about tomatoes? Right, nary a tomato in sight on this pizza. In pizza talk, when pizza isn’t topped with tomato sauce or tomatoes, it’s a “white” pizza, in Italian, pizza bianca.
