Spaghetti Squash

Recently came to know about this and of course had to try it!

Ingredients:
1 spaghetti squash
Fresh home-made tomato sauce

Cut the spaghetti squash into two, scoop out the seeds and central mass. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place the squash rind side up and bake for 45 minutes. Once baked remove the squash from the oven. Be careful, it can be very hot. Using a fork, scrap the inside pulp onto a plate. It should come out as slender spaghetti strands. Enjoy with some hot fresh home made tomato sauce!
