Spaghetti squash with garlic butter... anyone who loves buttery noodles will love this!

  • 1 lrg. squash, spaghetti, fresh, organic
  • 3 tbs. butter, unsalted, organic, raw or unpasteurized, grass-fed/pastured
  • 3 tbs. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic
  • 2 clove garlic, fresh, organic
  • 1 tbs. parsley, fresh, organic
  • 3 tbs. cheese, parmesan, raw, organic

Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut spaghetti squash in half and place (cut side down) in a baking dish with a little bit of water. Cook for about an hour, until skin gives a bit when touched. Remove from oven. Let cool a bit before using a fork to create spaghetti-like appearance. Move "spaghetti" to a baking dish.

Combine butter and coconut oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Add minced parsley and minced garlic, remove from heat, and drizzle mixture over the spaghetti squash. Sprinkle with a small amount of Parmesan cheese.

Place baking dish in oven on low broil for approximately 10 minutes, until mixture is heated through, possibly a touch of brown depending on your taste. Keep a close eye on this so you don't overcook it.
