1 medium spaghetti squash, 8″ long
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 clove garlic, minced
1/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake the spaghetti squash 1 hour 15 minutes or until tender. Cut in half; discard the seeds. Using a fork, scrape the flesh into a bowl, separating into strands.
In a small bowl, stir together the basil, butter or margarine, garlic, and salt. Stir the basil-butter into the squash until melted.
