Spicy Squash Spaghetti with Peppers and Ricotta cheese

Spicy Squash Spaghetti with Peppers and Ricotta cheese. What’s more fall-ish than squash? Just bake it, scrape it and stuff it with pretty much everything! Here, we chose a variety of veg and, of course, loads of cheese. Getting the spaghetti out of the squash now…well, it’s all about the baking – no surprises here. Small squashes need less time so check frequently and pinch the back of the squash with a knife, if the knife goes through relatively easily, then you’re ready to proceed to the next step. Over-baking the squash is not the end of the world, you’ll just end up with a squash puree and not spaghetti, same taste – different texture. Now here’s how to do it:
