SPAGHETTI SQUASH - THE PASTA ALTERNATIVE
- 1 spaghetti squash
- 4 tomatoes, beefsteak or on the vine
- 1 pkg mozzarella cheese (shredded)
- 2 scallions
Bake the squash in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour on 350. It depends on how big it is.
Open the squash, and peel the insides (it shreds like spaghetti).
Blanche the tomatoes in boiling water, and remove skins.*
Cut up the tomatoes in cubes and add to the squash. Place in a 9 x 13 pan with a light coating of cooking spray. Sprinkle on scallions and mozzarella.
Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350.
*This was how the recipe was given to me although I have been known to substitute the fresh tomatoes for canned in a pinch.
