Spaghetti Squash Mash with Basil and Mozzarella

Spaghetti Squash Mash with Basil and MozerrellaI wasn’t a fan of squash growing up as a kid, but over time I have learned to love squash prepared certain ways.  This is one that I salivate over!  It’s so good and very simple to make!


Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Cut a large spaghetti squash in half and fill the cavities with 8 garlic cloves and 2 tablespoons butter.  Drizzle with olive oil and cover with foil.  Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 45-60 minutes until squash is soft.

Scrape out the squash into a bowl and add 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil or 1/4 cup basil pesto.  Add 1 cup shredded mozzarella, salt and pepper to taste and mix well.  Serve warm with fresh tomatoes.
