Spaghetti Squash Primavera

This was the first time I ever made spaghetti squash.  It was really easy.  I have to say I don't think it tastes just like noodles but it was good.  I got this recipe from Skinnytaste and you can find it here. This is a vegetarian dish but if you wanted it to be vegan you could leave out the cheese.

1 spaghetti squash
1 T diced shallot
1/4 C diced red onion
2 large ribs of celery diced
1/4 C carrots  (I used shredded bc that is what I had on hand)
1 C broccoli florets
1/2 C chopped zucchini
1 jar marinara
1 T olive oil
salt & pepper
Stab spaghetti squash with knife or fork multiple times.
Microwave whole for 8 minutes.
Put olive oil in skillet over medium high heat.  
Add shallot, red onion, celery, and carrots and cook for 5 minutes.

With heat at medium add broccoli, zucchini and marinara and cook 3-4 minutes until tender crisp.
Slice spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. 
Scoop out seeds.
Shred squash into "noodles" with fork.
Add 2 C spaghetti squash to veggie mixture.
Salt & pepper to taste.
Pour mixture into baking dish.
Top with mozzarella and parmesan.
Broil until cheese is melted.
