Number of Servings: 4


    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


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.
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!
