Spaghetti Squash au Gratin

I discovered a version of this on Pinterest the other day. And since Spaghetti Squash has become a staple in my diet..I decided to treat myself by making it in a more unhealthier version. And boy was I ever happy I did. Spaghetti squash can be on the bland side so this recipe was awesome for adding in all that cheesy yummy flavour to it!
Make this tonight...you will not be disappointed!
Take your squash and pierce it all over with your fork.  Place on a pan in the oven at 350F until the squash is soft to the touch. This was a small squash and I roasted it for about 40 Minutes. Set this aside to cool a bit.

 I a saucepan add 1 Thinly sliced onion to 2 Tbsp of butter. Season with Salt, Pepper a pinch of Hot Red Pepper Flakes and 1/2 Tsp dried Thyme. Saute on Medium for a few minutes.
 Once the onions become translucent add about 2 minced cloves of garlic. Lower the heat and continue cooking until the onions are cooked through.
 Now back to the squash. It should have cooled enough so that you can handle it. Slice it in half and scoop out the seeds in the middle. With a fork start scraping all the flesh out.
 Remove your onion mixture from the heat and add all the scraped out squash plus 1/2 Cup Sour Cream and 1/2 Cup grated cheddar Cheese.Mix thoroughly to combine.
 Pour the mixture out into an ovenproof dish and top the mixture with more cheddar cheese. Bake in a 350F oven for about 20 Minutes.
A lovely accompaniment to my dinner!
