“DH and I love spaghetti squash and usually just serve it with a pat of butter, but we have also tried making spaghetti with it using the squash instead of pasta, and it has turned out really well. This is another recipe I found that substitutes squash for the pasta.”

Directions

  1. Place squash in 9-inch glass pie plate and pierce 6 times with a sharp knife. Microwave on High 5-6 minutes per pound, about 27 minutes, or until squash is tender when pierced with a knife. Cool 10 minutes for easier handling.

  3. Cut squash lengthwise in half; remove and discard seeds. With a fork, scrape flesh to separate into strands and place in large bowl; discard shell. Drain squash if necessary. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper; toss to combine.
  4. Divide squash among 4 dinner bowls. To serve, top with tomato mixture; garnish with basil leaves and Parmesan.
