Ingredients

    • 1 small spaghetti squash
    • 1 stick of butter
    • 1 cup grated myzithra (or parmesan) cheese

Directions

1. Poke holes in squash with a paring knife all over. Microwave on high 5 10 minutes until the squash is soft.



2. Melt butter in a sauce pan over medium heat until slightly browned and fragrant.



3. Cut the squash in half, lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds. Scrape the squash with a fork to get "spaghetti" strands.



4. Divide the squash among 4 plates. Top squash with 1/4 of the cheese and pour over 1/4 of the butter.



Serves 4.

    I can't believe the SP "Family" would judge. I was reading this recipe and instantly knew it was too much fat for me. But the calories and carbs are ideal. So just change it. No need to criticize!!! Oh yeah and the reason for the butter over the margerine..... butter is healthier. Moderation!!!!!! - 8/31/10

    sounds like a great low carb alternative to spaghetti. I agree with others. Just alter it to fit. As a "low carb eater", I rarely complain when a diet is high is carbs. I just alter it, you know. - 8/31/10

    I do similar, but use butter spray and a sprinkling of cheese; then seasoning. It is good. My favorite is spagetti squash with homemade no sugar meat sauce.
    I LOVE SPAGETTI SQUASH!! - 8/31/10

    From the "Rate this recipe" blurb: " Not all recipes on the site have to be completely healthy since moderation is one key to a healthy lifestyle." As other commenters have said: Adjust as needed. Love Spagetti squash made this way, it's a great side dish, I add italian seasoning, too. - 8/31/10
