One of my favorite winter vegetables is spaghetti squash and it can be incredibly versatile and useful in many recipes. One of my go to recipes for spaghetti squash is a warm, cheesy gratin that can serve as a perfect side dish or with a salad or tomato soup for a complete meal. You can also make this same recipe with shredded zucchini or summer squash.

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Cut your spaghetti squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Spray with non stick cooking spray and place flesh side down on a baking sheet covered in foil. Let cook for 45 minutes or until squash is cooked through and tender. Let squash cool and once it has, pull out the spaghetti squash with a fork. Chop the squash into smaller pieces and measure out 4 cups.

  3. Beat the three eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add the milk, cheese, basil, and salt and pepper and mix together. Add the squash and stir together.
  4. Spray an 8 or 9 inch pie plate or casserole dish with cooking spray and add in egg, cheese, basil, and squash combination.
  5. Sprinkle the top with the Parmesan cheese.
  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes until the top is golden brown.
