Spaghetti Squash With Tomatoes Basil And Parmesan
|Spaghetti squash||3 Pound, halved lengthwise, reserving one half for another use, and the seeds discarded|
|Olive oil||2 Tablespoon|
|Shredded fresh basil||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (Plus Additional For Garnish)|
|Dried oregano||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Freshly grated parmesan||3 Tablespoon|
|Sliced cherry tomatoes||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
In a glass baking dish arrange the squash half, cut side down, pour 1/4 cup water around it, and cover the dish tightly with microwave-safe plastic wrap.
Microwave the squash at high power (100%) for 12 minutes, or until it is soft when pressed, and let it stand, covered, for 3 minutes.
In a large bowl whisk together the oil, 1/4 cup of the basil, the oregano, and 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan, stir in the tomatoes, and season the mixture with salt and pepper.
While the squash is still warm scrape it with a fork to form strands, add the strands to the tomato mixture, and toss the mixture until it is combined.
Divide the mixture between 2 bowls, sprinkle the remaining 1 tablespoon Parmesan over it, and garnish it with the additional basil.
