My husband wasn't a big fan of spaghetti squash made the usual way with butter and garlic. I was making Leah Stacey's recipe on Just a Pinch for "Cumin Grilled Pork Chops" I found this recipe from the Epicurious website. Since both recipes had cumin in them they paired up beautifully! My husband loved it! Try Leah's pork chops with it!

How to Make Spaghetti Squash with Moroccan Spices

Step-by-Step

  1. Pierce squash (about an inch deep) all over with a small sharp knife to prevent bursting. Cook in microwave oven on high power for 6 minutes. Turn squash over and microwave until squash feels slightly soft when pressed, 6 to 8 minutes more. (Time may vary depending on microwave wattage). Cool squash for 5 minutes.
  2. While squash is cooking, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until golden, about 1 minute.
  3. Stir in cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper and salt. Remove from heat.
  4. Carefully halve squash lengthwise (it will give off steam) and remove seeds. Scrape squash flesh with a fork into bowl, loosening and separating strands from skin.
  5. Toss with spiced butter and fresh cilantro.
