csa noms: spaghetti squash

spaghetti squash! my new favorite nom! not only was this in my veggie box this week, it is SUPER gi friendly! i used a recipe from the food network. i ended up modifying it because it had me roast it at 450, but that caused the oil on it to smoke. so i scaled back the heat. worked out just fine.

1 spaghetti squash
1/8 cup of olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
marinara sauce (i like earth fare brand)
parmesan cheese


preheat oven to 300F. cut ends off of spaghetti squash and then in half. scrape out seeds. brush on olive oil. salt and pepper to taste. line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place squash on it flesh side down. bake for 40 minutes. when done, remove from oven and let rest until it is cool to the touch.

in the meantime, heat the marinara sauce on a pan.

when squash is cool, scrape out flesh with a spoon. then place it in the pan with the marinara sauce. stir just until squash is thoroughly heated. serve with parmesan on top.
