Step 1

Cut the spaghetti squash in half and remove the seeds. Place in a covered dish with a ¼ inch of water and microwave for 10 -12 minutes. Using a fork, scrape the insides of the squash and transfer to a small bowl.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Step 4

In a saucepan, add shallots, potatoes, carrots, onion, cashews, and the one cup water, and bring to a boil. Cover the pan and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until vegetables are very soft.

Step 5

In a blender, process the softened vegetables and cooking water, salt, garlic, 1/4 cup margarine, mustard, lemon juice, black pepper, and paprika until perfectly smooth.

In a large bowl, toss the cooked squash and blended sauce until completely coated.

Spread mixture into a 7 x 11 casserole dish and sprinkle with prepared breadcrumbs.
