    Add spaghetti squash and saute for 10 minutes or until squash becomes soft. Season with more salt and pepper if desired. Turn off the heat but keep the skillet on the stove top.
    Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the top and cover. Heat your sauce while cheese is melting. When cheese has melted, remove from heat and serve immediately with the sauce.
