Spaghetti Squash Pesto

Another day, another squash.  Pesto is generally served with pasta, but swapping the pasta for filling spaghetti sqaush not only makes it a little more healthy, but becomes a gluten-free option.  Add chicken or shrimp and this becomes a one dish meal.

Spaghetti Squash Pesto


1 large spaghetti squash, roasted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cut squash in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds.  Place cut side down in a shallow baking dish.  Bake 30 to 40 minutes.

Use a fork to scrape out spaghetti-like strand.  Pour warm pesto over strands and toss to coat.  Top with cheese and serve.
