Spaghetti Squash with Garlic and Onions

What you need: 

1 medium-large spaghetti squash, halved and deseeded
1 medium onion, sliced, divided
4-5 cloves garlic, crushed, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Add 1/2 onions and 1/2 garlic to each squash half, and a tablespoon olive oil to each squash. Sprinkle pepper on each.
2. Place halves in deep pan, and add enough water to just cover the bottom of pan. Cover pan with a lid or foil wrap.
3. Place in oven and bake for about 45 minutes.

Preparation Time: 
15 min
Cooking Time: 


Spaghetti Squash is one of my favorites! You can speed up cooking time by nuking the whole squash in the microwave for 3 minutes, splitting the squash in half, placing face down in a glass dish with a bit of water, and microwaving it again for about 15 minutes. Much easier!  :-*


I added two sprigs of rosemary to each half of the squash, along with the garlic and onions.  The rosemary gave the dish a woody, earthy flavor.  I never tried the recipe without the rosemary, and honestly, I could not imagine it without it.  Without the rosemary, it seems that the dish would be lacking good flavor.
