Equipment

  • Baking sheet
  • Foil or a Silpat™ baking sheet

Ingredients

  • 2 medium spaghetti squash
  • 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • Sea salt & black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup of unsalted butter melted
  • ¼ cup of Parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh parsley chopped

Instructions

  • Place the top oven rack in the center position and pre-heat the oven to 400°F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil or a Silpat™ baking sheet. Set aside.
  • Trim the top and bottom off each spaghetti squash to create a flat surface. Sit the squash upright and slice down the middle with a sharp knife. Scoop out the pulp and seeds with a spoon without piercing through the squash. Reserve seeds and set aside to toast later, if desired.
  • Brush the edges and inside of each squash half with olive oil. Sprinkle each half with the garlic powder and season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
  • Place the squash cut side down on the prepared baking sheet and place in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until the squash isfork-tender.
  • Remove from oven and cool for several minutes. Once cool enough to handle, flip over the squash and carefully “shred” the inside with a fork to create spaghetti-like strands, leaving the shredded squash inside the squash shells.
  • Drizzle the melted butter over the spaghetti squash and top each with some Parmesan cheese. Place back into the oven until the cheese is melted and starts to brown.
  • Remove from oven and serve immediately with some freshly chopped parsley sprinkled on top. Enjoy!
