1 medium-sized spaghetti squash

1/2 cup (2 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the remaining ingredients over medium-low heat and whisk until smooth and creamy, stirring frequently to prevent burning.

Cut the squash in half lengthways, remove and discard the seeds.

Scrape the inside of the squash with a fork, shredding it into noodle-like strands. Add the strands to the sauce and stir until thoroughly mixed and heated through.

Serve immediately.
