Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and grease a 9-inch cake or pie pan.
  2. Place the squash, cut side up, on a large baking sheet, and bake for about 50 minutes, or until tender. Set aside to cool slightly. (See below for microwave instructions.)
  3. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 3 minutes.
  4. Add the asparagus and garlic and sauté for about 3 minutes, or until the asparagus is soft and bright green. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  5. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cheese, salt, and pepper, then add the cooled onion-asparagus mixture and stir to combine. Stir in tomatoes.
  6. Using a fork, scrape the strands from the spaghetti squash and transfer to the bottom and sides of the greased cake pan, creating an even crust.
  7. Press paper towels onto the crust to remove any excess moisture.
  8. Pour the egg mixture onto the “crust” and bake for 40 minutes, or until the pie is firm and not wiggly. Enjoy!

Recipe Tips

To cook the squash in the microwave, slice in half and remove seeds. Place it cut side down in a container with about 1 inch of water and cook on high for about 12 minutes, or until you can easily pierce it with a fork. Remove it from the microwave and allow to cool slightly before handling it.
