Ingredients

For the squash filling:

  • 2 medium sized spaghetti squash
  • 1/3 Cup minced parsley
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch ground allspice
  • pinch ground ginger
  • 1/4 Cup minced shallots
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 cup diced tomato, drained
  • 2 Cups fresh bread crumbs
  • 1 stick salted butter, melted
  • 2/3 Cups ground Pecorino Romano
  • 1/4 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 Cup thinly sliced almonds, lightly toasted

Directions

For the squash filling:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Halve the spaghetti squash and remove the seeds. Place on a large shallow baking dish or sheet pan, and season with salt and pepper. Roast the squash, flesh side up, for 90 minutes.

After the squash are cool enough to handle, scrape the flesh into a large mixing bowl with a fork.

Sauté the shallots and garlic in 2 tablespoon of the butter until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir that mixture into the spaghetti squash.

Melt the remaining 6 tablespoons of butter, and pour into the squash.

Then, add all the herbs, spices and tomato. Fold together. Season with salt and pepper and reserve.

In a separate mixing bowl combine one stick of melted butter, the bread crumbs, cheese, almonds and the brown sugar.

Place the squash mixture in a large oval or rectangular baking dish and sprinkle the crumble over the top.

Cover loosely in aluminum foil and bake for 25 minutes at 325ºF.

Remove the foil and raise the temperature to 425 ºF. Cook untilcrumble is crispy, roughly an additional 25 minutes.
