Roasted spaghetti squash with bacon and Parmesan cheese is a great way to top spaghetti squash for an easy, tasty side dish. Although there are several methods to cook spaghetti squash, my favorite way to make it is roasted. To roast the squash, I cut it on half lengthwise, remove the seeds and cook it cut down for about one hour.
