Ingredients:  
1 spaghetti squash
2 cups of your favorite marinara or other spaghetti sauce
red pepper flakes (optional)
Parmesan cheese, grated

Directions:
Directions:
Poke the squash 5 times around with a fork. Be sure to poke all the way through. Place in microwave on high for approximately 12 to 15 minutes (depending upon size of squash). When skin "gives" gently when pressed, then it is done. Let sit for about 5 minutes to cool. Meanwhile, heat up the marinara on the stove or in the microwave. Slice the squash in half horizontally. Be careful because it will still be hot inside. Scoop out the seeds and discard (they will look like pumpkin seeds). Using a fork, gently scoop out the flesh of the squash. It will look like spaghetti. As you accumulate a pile of it, remove it to a large bowl and continue scooping until all the flesh has been removed. Pour the marinara over the spaghetti sauce and stir it in gently. Add any additional seasoning you want, such as the red pepper flakes. Mix in some Parmesan cheese, serve and sprinkle with some more cheese.
