Delicious Margarita Spaghetti Squash
1 whole spaghetti squash
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 large Roma tomato, finely chopped
2 tbsp. finely chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tsp. each salt & pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Using a large knife, split the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise down the middle. Be careful! I usually select smaller size spaghetti squashes as they are easier to cut! In case you have never cooked a spaghetti squash, here is what one looks like.. there are all kinds of squash available so you need to get the right one!
With a spoon, scoop out the seeds and the stringy center, like you are carving a pumpkin! Next, drizzle the inside of each half with olive oil, then season with the salt, pepper and garlic powder. Place the squash, open side down on a cookie sheet and bake for 35 minutes. Take out of the oven, and with a fork check to see if the squash is soft. It should easily pull apart with a fork into spaghetti like strands.( If it’s too hard to remove, put back in the oven for another 10 minutes)
With the fork, scrape all around the interior and fluff up the squash. It should be stringy (like linguine!). Leave the squash in the skin and top with the tomatoes and fresh basil and mozzarella cheese. Pop under the broiler for a couple of minutes, until the cheese is melted and lightly browned. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving. Scoop out servings with a big spoon! Delicious!!! Best of all, this easy Thanksgiving recipe has hardly any calories or points if you are on Weight Watchers!3-tier Oven Rack
