Helpful kitchen tools:

Chef's knife

Nonstick baking sheet

Coarse cheese grater

Large glass bowl

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 large or 2 small spaghetti squashes
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup storebought pesto
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup and 2 Tbsp shredded Parmesan
  • Salt
  • Black pepper

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375° F. Meanwhile, use a fork to poke several holes in a medium spaghetti squash, then microwave until the squash becomes slightly tender, about 4 to 5 minutes. Cut squash in half, and remove seeds and membranes. Rub the sides with olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place halves with cut sides down on a nonstick baking sheet. Bake until the squash is tender, about 30-40 minutes. Remove from the oven, and set aside to cool. Lower the oven to 250° F. Place pine nuts on a nonstick tray, and lightly toast for 8-10 minutes. Once squash is cooled, use a fork to shred the squash into a large bowl or dish. Combine squash with pesto, pine nuts and 1/4 cup Parmesan. Top with remaining Parmesan. Makes 8 servings.
