2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives
2 tablespoons finely chopped scallions (white and about 2 inches of the greens)
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2. Using a sharp knife, cut each squash in half lengthwise. Place them, cut side down, in a large baking dish. Add enough water to reach 1/2 inch up the sides of the dish, and cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the squash is easily pierced with a paring knife.
3. Turn the squash over, cover with foil again, and bake for another 15 minutes, until the squash is very tender. Remove from the oven, uncover and allow to cool slightly. Using a spoon, remove and discard the seeds. Using a fork, gently pull the strands of squash away from the peel, and place the squash strands in a mixing bowl.
4. In a 14-inch skillet, heat the butter over medium-high heat until it is foaming. Then add the Robiola and stir to melt. Add the spaghetti squash, herbs and salt and pepper, and toss thoroughly but gently to heat and combine. Serve immediately or at room temperature.
