Recipe Ingredients for Spaghetti Squash

6 cups squash , halved lengthwise and seeded
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
1 cup mozzarella, shredded
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Recipe Directions for Spaghetti Squash

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.

  2. Place spaghetti squash cut sides down on the prepared baking sheet, and bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a sharp knife can be inserted with only a little resistance. Remove squash from oven, and set aside to cool enough to be easily handled.

  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic, and saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Saute bell pepper until tender. Stir in the tomatoes, and cook only until tomatoes are warm.

  4. Use a large spoon to scoop the stringy pulp from the squash, and place in a medium bowl. Toss with the sauteed vegetables, mozzarella cheese, and basil. Serve warm.
