INGREDIENTS

  • 5 cup Cooked Spaghetti Squash
  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 medium (4-1/8" long) Scallions or Spring Onions
  • 1/4 cup Parsley
  • 1/4 cup Cilantro (Coriander)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper

DIRECTIONS

Before beginning this recipe, prepare spaghetti squash.  You will need about a 2-2.5 lb squash.  Prick the squash in several places and bake 45 minutes until tender in a preheated 400°F oven. Allow to cool slightly; cut in half, lengthwise; and scoop out seeds and discard. Pull out squash strands from each side with a fork. Transfer to a bowl to cool.  Alternatively, cut the squash in half, remove the seeds, place cut-side down on a microwaves safe plate and heat on high heat for 5 minutes at a time checking in between heatings to see when it has fully cooked through (about 10-15 minutes). 

  1. Whisk the olive oil with the green onions, parsley, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Pour over baked, cooled squash; toss until well combined.
  2. Refrigerate 2 hours for flavors to blend.
