Parmesan Spaghetti Squash

Named for its long, thin strands of noodlelike flesh, spaghetti squash is usually accompanied by tomatoes, which add a zip of flavor. Looking for something different yet still familiar we were inspired by Cacio e Pepe Pasta and decided to pair the squash with Parmigiano-Reggiano and delicate aromatics. Serve along with a roasted chicken and a simple green salad for a no-fuss supper.
