Spaghetti Squash Gratin

This might be the new veggie I am obsessed with! It is sooo versatile and healthy and EASY!!! I will prob be posting more recipes using it soon....I especially thought this would be well recieved by my niece (or any kids really). I tagged a few ppl I thought would like it. It is great for you gluten free folks, vegetarians, and vegans can easily modify it too!! This only makes about 2 servings, I think this could easily be doubled or more, just maybe need to bake a bit longer.

 Spaghetti Squash Gratin
 1 med. spaghetti squash
1 cup sour cream (can use low fat)
1 heaping Tbsp of fresh chives, chopped
1/4 C Pecorino Romano (plus a little more to dust on top)
salt to taste
LOTS of cracked black pepper (less for the kiddos, unless they like it)

 Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Microwave the whole squash for a minute, take it out and cut it in half lengthwise. Scoop out seeds. Place cut side down in a dish with a half inch of water and microwave about 10 minutes on high, until fork tender and squash shreds easily into strands. Use a fork to pull out the strands (just scrape it on the careful, it's hot), once all of the squash is shredded and in a baking dish, mix in all other ingredients and spread evenly in dish, sprinkle a little more cheese on top and more cracked black pepper (optional). Bake covered for 25 min, take off the cover and cook another 5 minutes...You're Welcome!!!
