*If you have time, roast your spaghetti squash instead of microwaving it. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Slice the squash lengthwise and rub a drizzle of oil all over the cut side of both squash halves, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place cut side down on a baking sheet and bake about 30 minutes (I like to roast the garlic + squash at the same time), or until the squash is just tender enough to scrape into strands. You want the squash to be barely tender, it will continue cooking later. Remove from the oven and scrape the squash into strands. Toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
