Killer Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash is one of those vegetables you've been walking past at the grocery store over the past couple months. It doesn't look that impressive really so I imagine very few people buy one unless they have a recipe to use it. So here you go!

Whole Spaghetti Squash
Killer Spaghetti Squash

1 spaghetti squash
olive oil
fresh basil
fresh chives
toasted pine nuts

1. Using a large knife, cut the spaghetti squash lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds, and drizzle it with olive oil.

2. Lay the two halves face down on a baking pan.  Bake at 350 deg for about 45 min. Remove pan from oven and allow it to cool for about 30 minutes.

3. Using an oven mitt, if needed, hold the spaghetti squash and scoop out the will come out in strands like pasta. Scoop it in a bowl. Mix with fresh chopped basil, chives, and salt/pepper. Toasted pine nuts (from a dry frying pan) are also great on top!
