Baked spaghetti squash with tomatoes and Parmesan

If you’re looking for in season produce, squash is great during fall.
In the past, I’ve always had spaghetti squash as a side dish. For this recipe, the spaghetti squash is the main. The first step is to cut the squash in half and clean it out. It is baked in the oven for 45 mins.

While the squash cooked, I prepared the rest of the ingredients.

Once the squash was done, I scraped the flesh into a bowl and set it aside.

The next part is to cook up the onion and garlic in a pan. Once they are soft, the tomatoes are added in.

When the tomatoes are soft, the spaghetti squash is mixed in.

After the squash is warmed through, the dish is taken off heat and the Parmesan and basil is added. And voila! The meal is ready to be served.

I loved this dish! And Matt did too. I was hoping Chloe would too, since she likes noodles. But apparently she wasn’t fooled. Darn!

I was worried this wouldn’t be sufficient as a meal. But I was wrong. I was full but wanted to eat more because it was delicious. I will be making this again very soon!
