Parmesan Garlic Roasted Spaghetti Squash – oooo la la!

Spaghetti Squash may not the best photographic subject…. but oh what an easy and seriously delicious dish this is!

In the past, I have usually cooked my spaghetti squash in the microwave by simply poking fork holes in it and “steaming,” but this time, I decided to roast it in the oven, and OH boy did we love it!!!

In the past, I also typically put a tomato or marinara sauce or canned diced tomatoes with seasoning on it, and it was good and filling and low calorie, and a great vegetable, but this version……

is KICKED UP!

Not sure I can go back now!

And as full flavored as it is, it is so super simple.

Give it a try, and see what you think!

Ingredients:parmesan-garlic-spaghetti-squash-1

  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 6 Tbsp butter
  • 3-4 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth (or vegetable broth to keep it completely vegetarian)
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmigiana Reggiano Cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut squash in half, scoop out seeds, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Place flesh down in a baking dish, and roast for approximately 30 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool slightly to handle.  While it is cooling, melt butter in saucepan, add garlic and cook for a minute or two.  Add broth.  Stir in cheese.

Use a fork to scoop out spaghetti squash.  Add to saucepan.  Stir to coat.  Sprinkle with parsley and a little more cheese if you please.

Enjoy!

Cheers & Hugs,
Jodi
