Before we even get started – was I the only person in the world that didn’t know that the ‘brussel’ in ‘Brussels sprouts’ was 1 – a proper noun that needed to be capitalized and 2 – had an ‘s’ on the end?  Geez.  I didn’t believe the spell check, and so I googled it.  Turns out, spell check was right.  Imagine that.

Anywho. I sort of went on a spaghetti squash kick a few weeks back.  This recipe was also a product of it.  I actually had something similar at work in January.  They’re trying to make the cafeteria food healthier, and I have somehow became the official taste tester [which I am 110% a-okay with!].  Before the day I tasted this at work I didn’t think that I liked Brussels sprouts (apparently so much that I didn’t know how to properly spell the food!).  This recipe changed my mind.  Spaghetti Squash with Roasted Brussels Sprouts [Vegan/Gluten Free]
