Spaghetti Squash and Toasted Garlic

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.
