Thanksgiving Recipes: Chef Clay Conley's Spaghetti Squash Gratin

As much as Thanksgiving is about the turkey, what most people really care about is the side dishes.

For the most part, however, our favorite accouterments tend to stick to the same few menu items. From mashed potatoes and gravy to green bean casserole to stuffing and its many incarnations, as much as we love them, even the most well-prepared dishes get kind of old year after year.

Unless, of course, you're a two time James Beard nominated chef.

We spoke to Clay Conley of Buccan about his Thanksgiving traditions and recipes -- and we managed to pick up a recipe for one of his favorite side dishes.
