I Love Spaghetti Squash! Spaghetti Squash Au Gratin Tastes like Hash Brown Casserole without all the calories and carbs
1 medium spaghetti squash
2 tablespoons butter
1 small yellow onion, cut in half and very thinly sliced
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes, or more if you like it spicy
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
½ cup sour cream ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
Cut the spaghetti squash in half and remove the seeds. Place in a covered dish with a ¼ inch of water and microwave for 10 -12 minutes.
In a medium sized skillet over medium heat, add the butter, onions, red pepper and thyme and cook until the onions are slightly brown in color. Salt and pepper to taste. Using a fork, scrape the insides of the squash and transfer to a small bowl. Combine the squash, onions, sour cream and half the cheese together and mix well.
Transfer the mixture to a buttered baking dish and top with remaining cheese. Place into a 375º for 15 – 20 minutes until golden brown on top.
