  3. ) Bake at 375 for 30 minutes
  4. ) Remove from oven and use a fork to scrape squash to make noodles. Set aside.
Cream Sauce:
  1. ) Meanwhile, In a large pan, saute bacon on medium heat until cooked through. Add onions, and saute until translucent (about another 1-2 minutes).
  2. ) Add garlic and stir continually until fragrant (about 1 minute).
  3. ) Add in spinach, then sun-dried tomatoes on top. Stir gently to combine ingredients until spinach softens and wilts down.
