Spaghetti Squash Au Gratin

Half of the reason I make any recipes that I make is because of pinterest. Thank you for making my life more fun...and making me fatter.
This one was actually pretty healthy. I guess "pretty healthy" is kind of relative, but I didn't feel super guilty eating this...so thats a good sign. I must say it was pretty delicious for "pretty healthy"!

Spaghetti Squash Au Gratin
Serves 6
1 medium spaghetti squash
2 tablespoons butter
1 small yellow onion, cut in half and very thinly sliced
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes, or more if you like it spicy
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
½ cup sour cream
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cut the spaghetti squash in half and remove the seeds. Place in a covered dish with a ¼ inch of water and microwave for 10 -12 minutes. In a medium sized skillet over medium heat, add the butter, onions, red pepper and thyme and cook until the onions are slightly brown in color. Salt and pepper to taste.

Using a fork, scrape the insides of the squash and transfer to a small bowl. Combine the squash, onions, sour cream and half the cheese together and mix well. Transfer the mixture to a buttered baking dish and top with remaining cheese.

Place into a 375ยบ for 15 – 20 minutes until golden brown on top.

Note: I'm planning on adding more spice next time. Maybe herbs...definitely salt and pepper at least.
