When you have five minutes to pack lunch in the morning, the leftovers are your best friends.  Let your imagination run wild as you grab random items from your refrigerator.  If you are lucky and creative, you might just come up with a nutritional and delicious meal.  Today, I was lucky!

Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Chicken Chorizo Sausage, Spinach and Roasted Asparagus

Ingredients (for 2 lunches)

1/2 of roasted spaghetti squash
1 link of chicken chorizo sausage, cooked and diced
4 cups spinach
10 spears of roasted asparagus
salt and pepper to taste


1. Divide ingredients evenly among two microwave safe containers.

2. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water and microwave, covered, on high for 2-3 minutes.  Stir, season with salt and pepper, and enjoy!

Spaghetti squash is a terrific alternative to pasta.  It has a lovely buttery flavor and thin strands, similar to angel hair pasta.
