1 medium size spaghetti squash
3 tablespoons sun-dried tomato paste
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced bell or other sweet pepper
1 minced clove of garlic
1/2 cup water
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon salt free seasoning (I use an organic blend I found at Costco that has all sort of wonderful herbs and spices)
Split squash lengthwise, remove seeds & pulp from the center. Place the two halves face down in a baking dish with about a 1/4 cup of water and bake in the microwave on high for about 10 minutes.
While the squash is in the microwave, saute the onion, peppers and garlic in a tablespoon of olive oil until onions are clear and set it aside.
Once the squash is tender, allow it to cool (about 10 minutes) until you can comfortable hold the halves. Scrap all the flesh out into a well oiled baking dish. Mix in the onions, peppers, garlic and water. Add the salt free seasoning, sun-dried tomato paste and cheddar cheese. Mix thoroughly and top with Parmesan cheese and bake in a 325° oven for 30 minutes.
