This spicy sauce, which makes good use of leftover chicken or turkey, is also great on true pastas, as well as spaghetti squash. For a vegetarian version, simply eliminate the meat. If you want a substitute, use extra firm tofu.

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium high heat, sauté onion, garlic and green onions for 2 minutes. Add the chicken or turkey and cook for about 3-4 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and wine and bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for about 20 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for another 5 minutes. Pour sauce over heated spaghetti squash and serve.
