This is a healthy, quick and easy dish. At least once you split the spaghetti squash in half. The rosemary, sage and thyme makes this side a nice, grounding and comforting veggie. Also the sweet sauteed onions and garlic lends it lots of flavor topped with grated parmesan cheese. Servings are either a side or meal. Once you taste it you will continue on to make a meal out of it.

In my microwave, the squash was done at 10 minutes. After scooping the squash from the shell, I drained it in a colander. I used dried rosemary and thought the end result was very yummy. I will certainly make this again. Thank you Rita!

I made this over the weekend - it's a good and simple recipe. Per other reviews I used fewer herbs. I did not have any nutmeg on hand, but believe it would add a nice twist. Thanks for posting an easy and tasty way to enjoy spaghetti squash, Rita
