I still had half of a spaghetti squash leftover from my post the other day and decided I should make a tasty side dish. I went with butter and toasted garlic. We really enjoyed it; the squash still had plenty of body to it and the garlic added a delicious touch. Very quick and easy to make; of course you will need the par-baked squash to get started.
Spaghetti Squash and Toasted Garlic
- 1/2 spaghetti squash (about 1 1/2 cups)
- 2 Tbs butter ~ divided
- 1 large clove garlic ~ minced
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 dash cayenne pepper
Prep spaghetti squash. In medium skillet melt 1 Tbs butter; add garlic, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Simmer for about 2 minutes until garlic is toasted.
Add squash and remaining butter and toss together. Heat another minute until hot.
