Spaghetti Squash with Marinara Sauce


1 whole spaghetti squash
1/8 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Gray salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups prepared (jar) marinara sauce

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Split the squash in half and scrape out seeds. Line an oven tray with aluminum foil. Season the spaghetti squash with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place flesh side down and roast for 30 to 40 minutes until fully cooked. Remove from the oven and let rest until cool enough to handle. Meanwhile heat the marinara sauce in a large sauté pan.

When squash is cool enough to handle, using a large kitchen spoon scrape the strands of squash from the inside of the skin. Toss the spaghetti squash in the pan with the hot marinara for just long enough to get hot.
