Spaghetti Squash Parmesan with Bacon

Side Dishes


½ large spaghetti squash (yields about 4-5 c. cooked threads)

4 slices bacon, chopped fine

3 oz. chopped onion

1/3 c. grated Parmesan cheese

Dash salt

¼ tsp. pepper


Invert half a large spaghetti squash in glass dish.  Surround with with ½” water and microwave 13-15 minutes.  Drain off water, invert, remove and discard seeds (or feed to the birds in your yard :) ) and fork out the threads into the same dish.  Set aside for now.  In non-stick skillet, brown bacon bits and onion until bacon is done and onion is tender. Sprinkle salt, pepper and Parmesan on top of squash.  Then spread onion/bacon mixture evenly on top.  Microwave 5 minutes on high, or bake in oven at 350º for 20 minutes.
