Spaghetti Squash Primavera

Serves 2 | 

Ingredients:

1 medium medium spaghetti squash
2 teaspoons minced garlic
Olive oil
Salt & pepper
  1. Pre-heat oven 350 degrees.
  2. Slice squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon as you would a pumpkin.
  3. Place halves onto an oven safe cooking dish face up. Spread garlic into the bowl like shape of the squash, season with salt & pepper, and drizzle with olive oil.
  4. Place onto the upper middle rack of the oven for about 30-40 minutes (you will know it is ready when the squash separates with little resistance from the skin).
  5. Remove from the oven, and place in coldest location possible for at least 20 minutes, before separating from skin.
  6. Then use a fork to scrape the cooked squash out of its skin, and at the same time, fluff and separate the squash into spaghetti-like strands.
