Spaghetti Squash with Jalapeño Cream for #FBS4Sandy

Thanks to Barb from Creative Culinary  and Jenn from Jenn Cuisine , food bloggers around the world today are uniting to support the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. We’re all posting comfort food recipes, dishes we’d make and deliver to those in need if we could.
Although coastal North Carolina residents didn’t experience the same level of devastation as our neighbors to the north, Hurricane Sandy (and it was a hurricane when it hit us) left its mark here. I live in the Outer Banks of NC on Hatteras Island. The gale force winds and pounding rain for three straight days dumped a foot of water in our yard and more than two feet covered our roads in some places.
Sandy also shredded our main access road and damaged our bridge, our only connection to the mainland. NC’s Department of Transportation estimates repairs will be completed by Thanksgiving. In the meantime, we’ll be using ferries. A round-trip “up the beach” which normally takes a couple of hours will now take at least five, if you’re lucky. I’ve heard horror stories of 200 cars in line at the docks, waiting for ferries that run every 90 minutes and can accommodate about 40 cars on each trip.
We were very fortunate that Sandy stayed off-shore here. We didn’t lose power or Internet during the entire storm in the village where I live, we had minimal property damage, we have food in our grocery stores and we have access to gas. We can handle a little transportation inconvenience. My heart goes out to those dealing with much more dire storm consequences.
So, if I could prepare some food for those in need, I’d make this creamy, spicy, comforting casserole. It’s a perfect side dish, but you’ll be tempted to grab a spoon and eat it directly from the pan. It’s that good.
