Ingredients

1 spaghetti squash (at least 4 lbs.)

8 oz. uncooked whole-wheat spaghetti

Optional toppings: marinara sauce, grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Microwave squash for 6 minutes, or until soft enough to cut. Halve lengthwise; scoop out and discard seeds.

Fill a large baking pan with 1/2 inch water and place squash halves in the pan, cut sides down. Bake until tender, about 40 minutes. (Click here for a slow-cooker alternative and a microwave-only option!)

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil.

Cook pasta according to the package instructions, about 8 minutes.

Use a fork to scrape out the squash strands. Place in a strainer to drain excess moisture. Thoroughly blot dry, removing as much moisture as possible.

Transfer 5 cups squash strands to a large bowl. (Save any remaining squash for another time.) Drain pasta, add to the bowl, and mix well.

MAKES 1 SERVING

HG Heads Up: A 4-pound squash yields about 5 cups cooked squash . . . sometimes more!
