"Spaghetti" (squash)

For a healthier, and still very tasty alternative, try spaghetti squash.  Now, this is by no means a replacement for a good plate of pasta, but it is a great occasional dinner, or side.

Cut in half and de-seed a spaghetti squash.  Cover each half in plastic wrap and microwave for about 10 minutes each (or roast on a pan in the oven on 350 for about 45 minutes.

Now, scoop all the yummy squash out from the inside (it is okay if some of the squash is still stuck together).  It will string apart and start to look a bit like spaghetti.  Saute your squash in olive oil, garlic, onions and salt (add other seasonings to taste if you are going to eat it plain).

Now serve it with your favorite spaghetti sauce and meat if you so desire.
