cup (2 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Place about 1 inch of water in a soup pot; place the whole squash in
the pot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, cover, and cook 25 to 30

In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat , combine remaining
ingredients except 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese; whisk until smooth and
creamy, stirring frequently to prevent burning.
When squash is tender, remove it to a cutting board and allow to cool
slightly, about 15 minutes. Cut squash in half lengthwise, then use a
soup spoon to remove and discard seeds. Scrape the inside of squash with
a fork, shredding it into noodle-like strands. Add strands to the sauce

tender. Be careful when cutting raw spaghetti squash --the outer skin is
