Garlic Parmesan Spaghetti Squash

First Post! Yay! So I am making this dish because I went to Sunflower Market today and the squash was on sale! I have always liked my vegetables and Spaghetti Squash was one of my favorites in high school. My mom usually served it like regular spaghetti with an awesome garlic tomato sauce. So here it goes:

Ingredients:

1 Spaghetti Squash

1/2 cup of butter, melted

6 cloves garlic, minced

1/3 cup Parmesan cheese (flakes or grated)

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

3/4 teaspoon salt

Crushed Red Pepper to taste

Additional Parmesan Cheese

Ingredients - Garlic Parmesan Spaghetti Squash

Method:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Farenheit. Pierce spaghetti squash several times in order to ensure there is no squash-plosion! Place squash in shallow baking pan and bake for 1 hour. I also decided to roast my garlic and so added it at the 45 min. mark.

For sauce, 10 minutes before squash is done remove garlic from oven and mince. Add butter and garlic to a small saucepan over medium heat, add salt, pepper, & crushed red pepper. Add the parmesan cheese and stir often until melted. Keep on low heat.

Remove squash from oven, cut in half lengthwise and remove seeds and pulp. Using a kitchen fork, separate strands until you get “spaghetti”.

Add sauce to squash, mix well and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Return to oven until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Finished Product - Garlic Parmesan Spaghetti Squash

Serve immediately and enjoy!

 

P.S. Next on the menu is Broiled Grapefruit, sounds interesting right?
