Ingredients:

2 spaghetti squashes (about 2½ pounds)
Cooking spray
½ teaspoon salt, divided
1¼ cups chopped fresh cilantro
1 cup vegetable broth
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound frozen shelled edamame (green soybeans), thawed
¼ cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Cut each squash in half lengthwise; discard seeds. Place squash halves, cut sides down on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350°F for 1 hour or until tender. Cool slightly. Scrape inside of squash with a fork to remove spaghetti-like strands to measure about 8 cups. Place in a large bowl. Sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon salt; toss gently to combine. Cover and keep warm.

3. Place cilantro, broth, oil, pepper, remaining ¼ teaspoon salt, garlic, and edamame in a food processor; pulse until coarsely chopped. Serve edamame pesto over squash; sprinkle with cheese.
