Cheesy Spaghetti Squash and Vegetables

As I have been cooking with a lot of butternut squash lately (see my quiche and salad recipes), I decided to switch things up a bit by cooking spaghetti squash. Here’s a quick guide on how to roast spaghetti squash from The Kitchn.

I found a spaghetti squash mac and cheese recipe from Fit Sugar and decided to make my own version of it.

  1. Place a saute pan over medium high heat with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add in chopped onions.

  6. Add the mozzarella and parmesan cheese when the milk bubbles.
  7. Stir until the cheese melts.
  8. Add in basil (and any other dried herbs) into the cheese mixture and stir.
  9. Pour the cheese mixture into the bowl with the spaghetti squash and mix.
  10. Fold in the sauteed vegetables with the spaghetti squash.
