"Hash" Brown Spaghetti Squash

"Hash" Brown Spaghetti Squash
I love hash brown casserole.  I haven't always felt the same about spaghetti squash. This is a great recipe to start out with if you haven't really eaten spaghetti squash before. 

1 spaghetti squash - cooked
2 tbsp butter
1 small yellow onion, chopped
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp fresh thyme
1 cup light sour cream
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded 

There are many ways to cook spaghetti squash.  If you have a way that works for you, use it. I found an awesome recipe.   You cut the squash in half (be careful, I just do it very slowly).  Scoop out the seeds.  Brush the halves with olive oil and salt/pepper.   Place on a pan and put it in the oven.  Set the temperature to 460 degrees.  (Do not preheat).   Cook until roasted.  Use a fork to scrape the insides "spaghetti" and put it in a buttered baking dish. 

Roasted Spaghetti Squash
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
Add the butter, onions, red pepper flakes and thyme in a pan cooking over medium heat.  Cook until the onions are translucent and almost brown in color. Salt and pepper to taste.

Add the onion mixture to the cooked spaghetti squash.  Add the sour cream and 3/4 cup of the cheese to the mixture. Stir it all together. Top with the remaining cheese and bake 15-20 minutes.
