You may have to check it & adjust baking time depending on the size of your squash, and of course ovens vary.

Remove from oven & use a spoon to scrape out seeds. Use a fork to "shred" the cooked flesh from the skin. It will look like spaghetti noodles.

Place shredded squash in a pot (med-low) with 3 tbsp of butter. Add 1 tbsp each finely chopped fresh sweet basil & rosemary. Add 3 minced garlic cloves. Stir gently until combined & heated through.
