Directions:
Heat oil in nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook onion until soft, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat.

Scrape cooked strands from squash into large bowl. Fluff with fork. Preheat broiler.
Add onions, basil, salt and pepper to squash strands. Toss well. Place mixture in a 1 quart oven-proof baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Broil 4 inches from heat for 2 minutes. Serve immediately. Garnish with fresh mint springs, if desired. Serves 6

Look for smooth, hard skinned squash without mold or soft spots. (spaghetti squash cooks quickly in the microwave in just 5 minutes per pound. Cut squash into quarters. Scrape out seeds. Or in large pot, add 2 inches of water. Bring to a boil. Put squash, skin side up in a steamer basket. Lower into pot, cover. Steam for 20 minutes. Check for doneness. Continue steaming if necessary. When done, let cool. In a raking motion, drag a fork across squash to loosen strands.)
