Garlic Spaghetti Squash with Herbs

Author: Pinch of Yum (recipe from Amanda Paa - Smitten with Squash) 

1 medium spaghetti squash, halved and seeded 
olive oil 
kosher salt 
2 cloves garlic, minced 
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar 
¼ cup minced fresh parsley 
2 tablespoons minced fresh basil (sage is also yummy) 
¾ cup shredded Gruyère cheese 
½ cup pine nuts, toasted 
black pepper
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Rub squash with a little bit of olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Place the cut side down on a rimmed baking sheet and roast for 25 minutes, until fork tender. Let cool about 10 minutes, then scrape the insides with a fork to pull the strands away from the skin. (At this point I put the strands in a colander, pressed them with a paper towel, and let them rest while I prepped the other ingredients - mine were really really heavy and watery, so this helped get some of the excess moisture out.)
In a large skillet, heat 2½ tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for 1½ minutes, until fragrant. Stir in spaghetti squash, vinegar, herbs, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Cook for about 2 minutes to heat through. Remove from heat and stir in Gruyère cheese, then top with pine nuts. Taste and add salt or pepper if desired.
I felt like I could have eaten this whole plate! Maybe I'm just extra hungry when it comes to squash?! If I were going to make this again, I'd plan to have it serve two people and I'd reduce the amount of oil and cheese to cut out some of the fat per serving. Using ¾ cup cheese isn't bad when split between four people - but when I'm eating the whole thing all by myself? Yeah, you get the idea. Smile
