7. Stir in spaghetti squash strands and cook until heated through. Remove skillet from heat and add shredded Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

8. Serve with additional Parmesan and parsley if desired.

 

Oven Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Slice spaghetti squash in half lengthwise* and scoop out the seeds. Place squash, cut-side down, onto the prepared baking sheet. Roast until tender, about 35-45 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.

3. Using a fork, scoop the spaghetti strands out of the squash into a bowl and set aside.
