Heart Healthy Squash in Microwave
Most people aren't quite sure how to prepare squash in a tasty fashion. That's why we're sharing the skinny on this simple squash dish.
At a glance
1 1/2 lb. spaghetti squash
2 tbsp. water
14 1/2 oz. can Italian-style stewed tomatoes, drained
1/4 cup grated or shredded Parmesan cheese
Remove seeds from squash. Place squash; cut side down, in a microwave-safe baking dish. Add water. Cover and microwave on 100% power (high) for 10 to 14 minutes, or until pulp can just be pierced with a fork; give dish a 1/2 turn twice during cooking and drain. Using potholders, hold squash in one hand and with a fork shred squash pulp into strands, letting them fall into the baking dish. Add drained tomatoes, tossing to coat and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
