Spaghetti Squash

I’m at the grocery and I see all of these beautiful fall squash and I’m thinking about Spaghetti Squash. It’s great tasting, a healthy alternative to pasta, and it’s so easy to make.

P1010284 This is a Spaghetti Squash. Put the whole thing in the microwave for about 90-120 seconds.

P1010285  P1010286 Carefully cut it in half. Then scoop out the seeds and soft fibers and discard them.

P1010287 Turn the halves upside down on a microwavable dish and then place about 1/4″ to 1/2″ of water in the dish and microwave for at least 12 minutes. (I cooked ours for 12 minutes, but it was still quite crunchy.) If you want it closer to the texture of cooked noodles you’ll need to cook it for closer to 20-25 minutes. Be careful when you pull it out of the microwave…it’s really hot and steamy.

P1010291 When it’s cooked to the tenderness you’re looking for, take a fork and pick the strands apart. It looks just spaghetti.

P1010290 I browned some butter.

P1010289 Then made a mixture of Parmesan cheese, Myzithra cheese, oregano, garlic powder, basil and a little salt and pepper.

P1010294 Seriously delicious, and healthy. One half of the squash filled this large plate.

Here’s the recipe:

1 medium spaghetti squash

4T butter

1/4 c. Myzithra cheese

1/4 c. Parmesan cheese

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. dried oregano

1 tsp. dried basil

salt and pepper to taste
