spaghetti squash au gratin


Tara found a recipe for this,and i modified it to turn it into a main course

2 medium spaghetti squash
1 large onion diced
3/4 lb bacon (or pancetta) diced
3 tbsp butter
2 cups sour cream
3 cups shredded cheese divided (i used a mixture of monterey jack and sharp cheddar1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

preheat oven to 350
using a sharp knife slice the spaghetti squash lengthwise. remove the seeds
microwave each squash in a microwave safe dish cut side down for 12 minutes, you will probably have to do each squash separately
while the squash is cooking melt the butter in a saute pan. saute the onion and bacon until the onion starts to brown. add the garlic and red pepper and saute 1 more minute. drain the fat from the pan

using a fork scrape the squash flesh out. it should form long threads,hence the name
in a large bowl mix the squash,sour cream,the onion bacon mixture and 1/2 the cheese
pour the mixture into a baking dish. cover with the remaining cheese
bake for 30 minutes

serves 4-6
