If you have a microwave oven, you can have spaghetti squash in no time. It won’t taste a great deal like pasta, but on the other hand, it’s pretty good in its own right, especially with lots of butter and grated Parmesan.

Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash, about 3 pounds
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and lots of freshly ground pepper
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

Cut the squash in half lengthwise and put it in a baking dish cut side down, adding a little water. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and microwave 8 to 10 minutes, or until the squash is tender.

Turn the squash halves over and carefully pull out and discard the seeds—some may be lurking in the strands. With a fork, scrape out the strands until you have about 3 cups.

Toss the strands in a bowl with the remaining ingredients and serve immediately.
