When available, Nora makes orangetti squash, an orange spaghetti squash with a rich yellow color.
1. OVEN: 400F degrees.
2. Cut the squash in half lengthwise and scrap out the seeds. Place the squash cut-side-down, in a baking dish. Add the water and bake about 45 minutes, or until you can easily insert the tip of a knife.
3. Remove the squash from the oven and using a fork, scrap out the stringy pulp. It will separate into spaghetti-like strands. Cut the squash into a serving bowl, season with olive oil, chives, or mint, and salt and pepper, to taste.
About 4 cups: 100 cals, 3.6g fat.
