How to make even the blandest foods Aries-approved!
You like your food the way you like your partners—hot! Spice up something as mundane as butternut squash by adding a dose of smoky cayenne. Cut peeled squash into strips and toss with two tablespoons olive oil and one-half teaspoon of black pepper, cayenne, cumin, and salt. Bake on a baking sheet for 20 minutes at 450, turning halfway through. Or, top prepared pizza dough with a spicy sauce, some of the cooked squash mixed with onion and cayenne. Crumble goat cheese on top and bake until crispy for a novel take on an old standard.
