Chili-Garlic "Mac" and Cheese


Ingredients:
1 spaghetti squash 
2/3 c. cream, preferably raw
3 Tbs. butter, preferably raw
1 3/4 c. raw cheddar cheese
1 garlic clove
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. fine sea salt, plus more to taste
freshly cracked black pepper to taste

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut squash in half lengthwise and remove seeds and pulp.  Place squash halves hollow side down in large baking pan.  Fill baking pan with water about halfway to the top and cover with foil.    Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until squash can be easily pierced with a fork through its skin.

Once squash is cooked, carefully scoop out its insides and place in large skillet.  Add cream, butter, and cheese and gently heat over medium-low heat until butter and cheese is melted and everything is well combined.  Turn off heat and add the last four ingredients, mix well, spoon into bowls, and enjoy!
