Spaghetti squash with sundried tomato, fresh basil and pistachio pesto Makes 4 servings

2 spaghetti squash
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes in olive oil, cut into strips
1/2 cup roasted pistachios
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese


1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Cut the squash in half lengthwise. With the help of a spoon, remove and discard the seeds.

3. Put the squash in a baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 35-45 minutes, or until the squash is tender.

4. Remove from oven and let cool.

5. With the help of a fork, scrape out the squash pulp until you can remove it all. Discard the squash skin.

6. While the squash is baking, make the pesto processing the basil, tomatoes, pistachios and olive oil in a food processor (better if you do it by pulsing several times). Add the Parmesan cheese and pulse.

7. Serve the squash as if it were spaghetti with the pesto sauce. Top with Parmesan cheese.
