Spaghetti squash sauté (Diabetic)


1 spaghetti squash (approximately 3 pounds)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium purple onion, coarsely chopped
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
1 clove (or teaspoon) minced garlic
2 teaspoons dried basil
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley


Preheat oven to 350°F. Split squash lengthwise and discard seeds. Place squash on a baking sheet, cut side up, and bake 50–60 minutes or until tender when poked with a fork. Remove from oven. Run a fork through the squash, separating the pulp into strands; set aside. Discard outer skin.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat olive oil. Add onion and mushrooms; cook over
medium heat, stirring frequently, until onion is translucent (approximately 3–4 minutes). Add peas, garlic, basil, thyme, and salt; heat through. Toss in squash pulp and heat through (approximately 2–3 minutes more). Place in serving dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley.
