Easy Cheesy Spaghetti Squash ~ Serves 4
Time 1 hr ~ Prep 20 min ~ Cook 40 min

Spaghetti squash is a nutritious, but still filling, alternative to noodles in this easy, cheesy pasta-like side dish.
A touch of mayonnaise adds both moisture and flavour to this delicious vegetable side dish.
After the first bite, you'll never want to prepare spaghetti squash any other way!

1 small spaghetti squash (2-1/2 lb/1.1 kg), cut lengthwise in half, seeded
1 cup water
1/4 cup Heinz [Seriously] Good Light Mayonnaise Style Dressing
1 teaspoon flour
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 cup milk
1/4 lb (125 g) light old cheddar cheese, shredded
3 slices reduced-sodium bacon, cooked, chopped
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper

Heat oven to 400ºF.
Place squash halves, cut sides down, in shallow baking dish. Add water. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until squash is tender; cool slightly.
Meanwhile, whisk dressing, flour and garlic powder in medium microwaveable bowl until blended. Gradually stir in milk. Microwave on HIGH 2 minutes or until sauce is thickened, stirring after each minute. Stir in cheese. Microwave 1 minute; stir until cheese is completely melted and sauce is well blended.
Use folk to pull squash flesh into spaghetti-like strands; spoon into strainer. Drain well.
Place in 4 serving bowls.
Top with cheese sauce and bacon; sprinkle with pepper.
