1 pepper, diced

1 bunch of green onions, diced

1 jar of Neal Brothers Foods All Natural Corn Salsa

SalsaNaturalCorn (1)

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Cut spaghetti squash in half-length wise, scoop seeds out and place open face down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 1 hour until edges are brown.

In a frying pan, heat oil. Add garlic and onions and sauté onions are translucent. Add zucchini, corn, pepper, beans and spices and stir to ensure that the spices are evenly distributed. Cover the pan and cook on medium for 25 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon occasionally.

After the spaghetti squash has finished cooking, remove it from the oven to cool.

In a 9” x 13” pan, spread a thick layer of Neal Brothers Corn Salsa and smooth out evenly with a spatula. Scoop out the spaghetti squash and cover all of the salsa. Add the vegetable and bean mix and layer it on the spaghetti squash. Sprinkle a very light layer of Daiya cheese, followed by another thick layer of Neal Brothers Corn Salsa, using a spatula to ensure that everything is evenly covered with salsa. At this point, the jar of salsa should be empty. Cover the casserole with the spelt bread crumbs, another layer of cheese and then finally the green onions.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes. Best enjoyed with Neal Brothers Salsa, avocado slices and fresh tomato slices.
