A good recipe for spaghetti squash


On our recent foray into the mountains we purchased some spaghetti squash and some butternut squash. A while back I had found this recipe for spaghetti squash and decided to try it out. Rob and I both really liked it and would highly recommend it.

Spaghetti Squash Au Gratin

1 medium spaghetti squash
2 Tbsps. butter or olive oil
1 small onion sliced
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
salt and pepper
1/2 cup sour cream
about 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cut squash in half and remove seeds. Place cut side up in a 9" x 13" pyrex baking dish. Add 1/4 cup water. Partially cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 8-10 mins. or until squash is tender.

While squash is cooking saute onion in butter or oil until lightly browned. Combine with thyme, sour cream, and 1/2 cup of the cheese.

After squash is cooked scrape it from the shell with a fork and add to the onion mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour into a greased 2 quart casserole dish and top with the remaining cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for about 15-20 mins. to warm through and melt cheese.

Here is a link to another post about how to prepare the spaghetti squash which might be helpful if you have never cooked one before.
