Italian Style Spaghetti Squash
Ingredients
1 small spaghetti squash (about 2 lb.)
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion peeled, sliced and quartered
1/2 fennel bulb cut into matchstick-size pieces
1 medium zucchini cut into julienne strips
2 cloves garlic minced
3 medium tomatoes on the vine seeded and diced
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, plus extra for passing shredded
3 tbsp. snipped fresh basil
pepper to taste Freshly ground
Salt to taste (optional)
Directions
Prep time: 15 minutes, Cook time: 30 minutes

Pierce squash with the tip of a small sharp knife and microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes per pound. Let cool slightly, then cut in half and scrape out seeds. Scrape squash with a fork to form spaghetti-like strands. Meanwhile, while squash is cooking, heat oil in a large skillet. Add onion and fennel; cook for 10 minutes or until softened. Add zucchini and garlic; cook and stir for 5 minutes more. Add tomatoes and cooked squash; cook, stirring frequently, until all ingredients are hot. Stir in cheese and basil; season to taste. Serve with additional Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Makes 6 servings.
