|Spaghetti Squash with Tomatoes, Basil and Parmesan|
|a 3-pound spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise, reserving one half for another use, and the seeds discarded |
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup shredded fresh basil leaves plus additional for garnish
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
In a glass baking dish, arrange the squash half, cut side down.
Pour 1/4 cup water around it, and cover the dish tightly with microwave-safe platic wrap.
Microwave the squash at high power (100%) for 12 minutes, or until it is soft when pressed, and let it stand, covered, for 3 minutes.
In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, 1/4 cup of the basil, oregano, and 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan, stir in the tomatoes, and season the mixture with salt and pepper.
While the squash is still warm, scrape it with a fork to form strands; add the strands to the tomato mixture and toss the mixture until it is combined.
Season with salt and pepper.
