  • Check the doneness using a fork.
  • Meanwhile, grease a large pan with the remaining ghee and cook the onion over a medium heat until lightly browned.
  • Then add the chorizo and cook for 3-5 minutes or until browned.
  • Add the canned tomatoes, season with salt and pepper and combine.
  • Cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Then add the grated cheddar cheese (reserve some for topping) and mix well.
  • Take off the heat and fill up each of the spaghetti squash halves with the meat mixture.
  • Top with the reserved cheese and place under a broiler for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and crisped up.
  • Enjoy immediately or let it cool down and refrigerate for up to 4 days.
