I <3 NY artist Milton Glaser 
Does Shakespeare,

(Portrait Art Posters)

Theatre for a New Audience is an organization that produces adventurous Shakespearean and contemporary theatre. Its mastermind, Jeffrey Horowitz, likes the idea of also producing modern portraits of the Bard. Years ago he turned to New York's premier designer, Milton Glaser, to create a series of portraits of Shakespeare and to design their theatre posters.

A few of Milton Glaser's posters from the Theatre for a New Audience series (and many other Glaser posters) are available at Glaser's website store:

Preheat the oven to 450º.

Cut the spaghetti squash in half, root to tip, and scrape out the seeds. Season the spaghetti squash with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place flesh side down on a foil lined pan and roast for 30 to 40 minutes, until fully cooked. Remove from the oven and let rest until cool enough to handle.

When cool, scrape out the spaghetti-like strands into a bowl. 

In a large high walled skillet, pour in a little olive oil into the skillet and saute the diced onions, peppers, garlic, carrots and celery stirring occasionally until they start to brown. 

Then add both cans of tomatoes to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes, this will sweeten the tomatoes. 

Add the Chili Powder, Red Pepper Flakes, Ground Cumin, Paprika, Ground Cinnamon, Tabasco Hot Sauce and mix completely. 

Cook mixture for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Finally add the secret ingredient, a good dose of organic ketchup - stir-in thoroughly and taste for seasoning. If needed add some salt & pepper to taste. Mix completely. 

Ladle over spaghetti squash.
