Especially during the summer, I let the garden inspire me on what’s for dinner. Tonight’s combination was spaghetti squash, tomatillos, jalapeños, onion, and tomatoes.
I started by cutting the squash in half, and placed it upside down in about 1/2 in of water. I cooked it at 350 for about 40 minutes.
Next I chopped up an onion, about 10 tomatillos, 2 jalapeños, and a tomato. I also added 1 clove of garlic (grated), salt, and pepper.
I cooked this down for about 30 minutes, until it thickened up. I did more of a chunky sauce, but you could also add chicken stock.
Meanwhile, I cooked up some venison micro-stew pieces with some salt, pepper, and olive oil.
I pulled the spaghetti squash with a fork and added a little butter, salt, and pepper.
Then I put it all together. Simple and so yummy!
Update … the leftover venison and tomatillo sauce make an excellent addition to breakfast tacos. Just add eggs, cheese, and tortillas. Wow! I could open a food truck with those.
