Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Cut squash in half lengthwise, and scoop out seeds.
  2. Drizzle 1 tbsp. olive oil over each squash half. Then, sprinkle spices evenly over each squash. Place squash cut sides down onto a baking sheet and roast for 1 hour.
  3. Once roasted, flip squashes cut side up. Using two forks, pull the cooked squash "spaghetti" strands from the peel. Place in a large bowl. Add prepared pesto and toss well.
  4. Garnish with fresh basil and serve warm.
