Baked Spaghetti Squash


Ingredients:
  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 8-10 cherry tomato, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp. chopped garlic
 
 
Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise down the middle. Use a spoon to remove the seeds and center strings. Drizzle the two halves with olive oil and then sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  • Place the squash, open side down on a cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, check to see if the squash is soft and easily comes up with a fork into a spaghetti-like texture. If it's too hard to remove, cook for another 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, scrape and fluff the stringy squash with a fork. Leave the squash in the skin.
  • Turn the oven up to broil. Add the tomatoes and fresh basil into the squash, stir and top with the cheese. Place in the broiler for 3-4 minutes, until the cheese is melted and slightly browned. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving the squash. Enjoy!
