It's a great substitute for pasta and one of my favorite dishes is to serve it with a tomato sauce. It's naturally buttery and crunchy and a healthy choice!
Step 1: Ingredients
1 spaghetti squash
grated parmesan cheese
slices of bread (I enjoyed a loaf of Levain with this dinner)
To save time, I used a jar of spaghetti sauce that I had on hand and added some fresh ingredients to it.
To add to the spaghetti sauce:
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves of garlic
1 green bell pepper
Step 2: Prepare the Spaghetti Squash
Carefully slice the spaghetti squash in half. Then, use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and any strings. Keep these in a bowl and set them aside. You can roast the seeds for a snack or salad topper.
Step 3: Bake the Spaghetti Squash
Bake for about 45 minutes or until you can easily poke a fork through the skin. Once it's done, remove the two halves from the oven and let them cool.
Step 4: Cook the Sauce
Pour the tomato sauce into a pan and heat it up. Cut up the onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Once it's simmering, add the onion and garlic. I saved the bell pepper until about 10 minutes before I was ready to serve. Add black pepper to taste.
