Chefs notes

Just like the original, only guilt-free! When cooked, spaghetti squash is similar in texture to noodles or shredded potatoes and makes the perfect platform for a healthier version of hash browns.

1. To roast the spaghetti squash: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a pan with foil, cut the squash in half lengthwise, scoop out and discard the seeds. Spray the squash with fat-free olive oil cooking spray and season with a little sea salt and black pepper. Roast the squash cut side down for 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes. Pull out the squash with a fork so it pulls away in strands.

2. Saute the onion in a non-stick fry pan until translucent, add the squash and seasonings, cook until squash crisps up and is golden brown.

Note: Roast the squash ahead of time and freeze in 1/2 cup portions, defrost and use as needed.
