Ingredients

1 spaghetti squash 1.8 kg
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1 cup My Mother's Tomato Sauce 250 mL
1 tbsp butter, unsalted 14 g
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated 18 g

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F.
  2. Cut the squash in half lengthwise, then scoop out and discard the seeds. Place the halves on a baking sheet, cut side down. Bake until soft, about 45 min. Alternatively, cook each halve separately in a microwave oven: Place each halve in a bowl, add about 1/4 cup of water, then cover partially with a plastic wrap. Cook at high intensity about 8 min for each halve.
  3. While the squash is cooking, heat the tomato sauce in a saucepan over low heat. Set aside.
  4. Using a fork, rake out and pull the strands. Drain the strands then transfer them to individual bowls. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour the sauce over the squash, top with the butter and cheese, then serve.
