Ingredients

    Spaghetti Squash, 3 cup
    Garlic, 1 tsp
    Onions, raw, .5 medium (2-1/2" dia)
    Zucchini, 1 cup, sliced
    Green Peppers (bell peppers), 4 cup, strips
    Mushrooms, fresh, 3 cup, pieces or slices
    Tomatos (1 Can diced)
    Oregano, ground, 1 tbsp
    Granulated Sugar, 1 individual packet
    Salt, 1 dash
    Pepper, black, 1 dash
    1 6oz. can tomato paste
    water for desired thickness

Directions

Squash: Using sharp knife, split squash in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Microwave skin-side down at High power for 12-16 minutes (depending on your microwave), rotating the pieces halfway through.

Test with point of small knife to see if it is tender; if not, nuke it for another few minutes.

Sauce: In non-stick pan, sauté garlic and onions until they release their fragrance.

Add the remainder of the veggies and sauté for about 5 minutes at medium heat till they start to release their juices. The onions should not get brown. Now, add the tomatoes and stir. Simmer at low-to medium heat till the excess liquid is evaporated.

While the sauce is reducing, you can play with the seasonings until you get something you like.
Assembly:
Using oven mitts, remove squash from microwave and place on large platter. Keep the mitts on while you take a large fork and flake the squash into pasta-like strands. Use a lengthwise motion - if you've never seen this before, you'll be amazed how pasta-like this becomes! Divide spaghetti squash into two serving bowls, top with sauce, and enjoy!
