The other day I saw this idea on Pinterest and just had to try it. By the way if you aren't already on Pinterest what are you waiting for?? Ok, so I sound like a spokesperson but seriously, it's a great resource to get new ideas and compile things you like or would like to try into one place. I love spaghetti squash especially as bathing suit season approaches, so this seemed like a way easier way to prepare it.
To be honest I didn't read the recipe attached to the picture so I just did what I thought would work best. Cut squash in half length wise and place cut side up on a baking dish. I added in a couple tablespoons of water into the squash "bowls" and a teaspoon of olive oil. I diced a clove of garlic and tossed it in the liquid mixture along with s&p and red pepper flakes. Top the squash bowls off with the marinara of your choice. I baked uncovered at 375* for close to an hour before deciding to cover them with tin foil and putting some water in the bottom of the baking dish so they would steam (I should have done this from the beginning!) This sped up the cooking process and when they were fork tender I sprinkled with cheese and placed back in the oven for it to melt. Top with basil and enjoy! This is definitely going my new favorite way to prepare this! So easy!
Delicious! You've got to try this!
