  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  • Step 1
    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Step 3
    Take knife and from the top of the garlic, cut 1/4 inch. Season with a pinch of salt and drizzle with one teaspoon olive oil. Wrap in a double layer of foil and with the squash, place on the baking sheet.
  • Step 4
    Until squash shreds easily with a fork, roast in the preheated oven, about thirty mins.
  • Step 5
    Start the sauce after the squash and garlic have been roasting for twenty mins. In a saucepan, melt two tbsp. butter over medium heat. Pour in cream and simmer for two mins. Stir in nutmeg and Parmesan cheese, whisking quickly until it gets smooth. Add remaining two tbsp. of butter.
  • Step 6
    Take the garlic and squash out from the oven. Into spaghetti strands, pull squash with a fork.
  • Step 7
    Let garlic cool slightly, then into a small dish, squeeze the cloves. To mash the pulp into a smooth consistency, use a fork. Stir well after adding to the cheese sauce.
  • Step 8
    Between the squash, divide Alfredo sauce evenly, sprinkle with parsley.
    Serve & Enjoy!
