In an attempt to try out a few new holiday side dishes, I discovered a dish that makes me push away the typical potato casserole. I will admit that I have not cooked with spaghetti squash. What a pleasant surprise! This creation had this carb loving family excited. All the goodness with no guilt! If you are a newbie to spaghetti squash, this video might help you out. http://www.ehow.com/video_2346682_making-spaghetti-squash-strings-spaghetti.html

Spaghetti Squash Au Gratin
1 medium spaghetti squash
3 tablespoons butter
1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
¼ t red pepper flakes, or more if you like it spicy
1 t fresh thyme
½ cup sour cream
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
Cut the spaghetti squash in half and remove the seeds. Place in a covered dish with a ¼ inch of water and microwave for 10 -12 minutes. In a medium sized skillet over medium heat, add the butter, onions, red pepper and thyme and cook until the onions are slightly brown in color. Salt and pepper to taste.
Using a fork, scrape the insides of the squash and transfer to a small bowl. Combine the squash, onions, sour cream and half the cheese together and mix well. Transfer the mixture to a buttered baking dish 8 x11 and top with remaining cheese.
Place into a 375º for 15 – 20 minutes until golden brown on top.

Tried this tonight! It was delicious! I need to cook more spaghetti squash and this is now my number one favorite recipe for using up the fall bounty.
This is now one of our favorite veggie dishes. Have passed it on in my family as well!
