Garlic Spaghetti Squash with Herb Brown Butter
2 cloves minced garlic, more less to taste
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme leaves
1 spaghetti squash
4 tablespoons butter, unsalted best
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Chopped fresh tomato, optional garnish
Mince garlic, set aside. Mince fresh herbs, set aside.
Cut top and bottom from squash, slice into 1-2 inch thick rings. Remove seeds. For speed, place rings in microwave safe dish with ½-inch water. Loosely cover with plastic wrap, microwave on high for 10-15 minutes or until desired fork tender.
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; swirl or stir pan constantly to prevent the milk solids and salt from falling to the bottom of the pan and burning. Cook until butter is light tan in color and has a nutty aroma (about 4-5 minutes). Add garlic and stir until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Remove from heat. Add minced garlic and continue to until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Add fresh herbs and lemon juice, season to taste with salt and pepper.
