toss the beets and red kuri squash with the olive oil and salt. spread them on a baking sheet and bake at 375 for about 20-30 minutes or until tender.

place the bacon in a pan and start browning it. add the garlic when it starts to get some color and the red pepper flakes. set aside.

in the meantime, cook the spaghetti in salted boiling water. reserve a little bit of the cooking liquid and drain. toss the pasta with the bacon, garlic and roasted vegetables. add a little bit of the cooking liquid if needed. serve with some beet leaves or spinach.
