Spaghetti Squash Dinner

I do believe that I'm a little late to the spaghetti squash party, but better late than never right?

We had company over for dinner the night I made this, and one person said, speaking of the squash, "That's better than any regular spaghetti I have ever eaten!"  What??  

You guys, it was so good, easy, and healthy!  Why have I never made this before???

I looked at a lot of recipes and I used this one as a reference.

Cheesy Baked Spaghetti Squash Recipe

1  spaghetti squash
1- 2 cup of your favorite marinara or spaghetti sauce in each half  - depending on the size of your squash
Mozzarella cheese grated (or I used a blend of Italian cheeses)
Parmesan cheese grated
  1. Cook your spaghetti squash. Stab it a few times all over, place on a paper-towel-lined plate, and microwave for 5-6 minutes. Turn the whole squash over and microwave for another 5-6 minutes, until squash is soft and easily pierced with a knife.  Slice the squash in half the long way, then scoop out the seeds. Using a fork, swirl the strands of squash around to separate. 
  2. Pour 1- 2 cups of the marinara sauce into each squash half, add desired amounts of mozzarella, and swirl to coat the squash. Taste and add more sauce if you wish. Preheat your broiler.
  3. Gently transfer the squash halves to a foil-lined broiler sheet. Sprinkle each squash half with enough Parmesan to cover the top. Broil on high for about 5 minutes (keep an eye on things so the squash doesn't burn), until the cheese is melted, bubbling, and browned. Serve immediately.
