Spaghetti [Squash] and Tomato Sauce

Overall I'm quite a happy person. People see me as an optimist (at least I think they do), and generally they're correct. But I think Dallas gets to me; our values are Puritanical, we're sexually repressed, there's not much going on of interest in terms of the Great Outdoors, and most of the people are a little too materialistic and class-interested for my taste.

Spaghetti [Squash] and Tomato Sauce

1 Spaghetti Squash

4 Large Roma Tomatoes
6 Cloves Garlic
1.25 Onions Diced
1 Red Bell Pepper Diced
2 Large Pinches Fennel Seeds [Hulk] Smash[ed]
5 Pinches Basil
2 Large Pinches Oregano
3 Large Pinches Cracked Pepper Flakes
1 Block of Swiss Chess (which makes ~1 bowl Shredded Cheese when grated with a nice microplane)
Salt and Pepper (just for fun)
Sexy Quantity of Olive Oil Fun

Cut the Squash in half and bake at 350-400 for ~45 minutes.

While Squash is cooking, saute the Onion and 2/3 of the Garlic for a few minutes in Olive Oil. While The Onion and Garlic are sauteing, add the spices, puree the Tomato with the remaining Garlic and add all of the above to the Onion and Garlic mixture.

Once the Squash is done, take it out and allow to cool slightly. While the Squash cools, add the Cheese and Red Bell to the sauce. Scrape out the Squash with a fork, Salt and Pepper, and then add the Cheesy-Tomato sauce to the Squash. Feed it to your face like a boss- seriously, this is vegetarian, so don't feel bad. You might as well complete the deal with a bottle of wine (I bought a bottle of Banrock Station 2008 Shiraz (whatever that is) for $3.33 the other day at Sprouts). What. A. Life.
