Delicious Baked Eggs in Spaghetti Squash Nests

This recipe calls for cooked spaghetti squash. There’s a few ways to cook it, you can either roast in the oven cut side down in a baking dish at 375°F for 1 hour, or the quicker way is to pierce it all over with a fork, then microwave until the skin is soft, about 2 to 3 minutes per pound. Remove the seeds and scrape the strands with a fork. Because I had the time, I did this in the oven, the method I prefer.
