The Pasta:

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the squash on a cutting board and cut it in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds using a large spoon. Place both halves of squash on a rimmed baking sheet facing up. Pour 1/4 cup of water in the pan and roast for 45 minutes.

Remove the squash from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes. Use a large fork to scoop out the spaghetti squash in an outward scraping motion. Place in a bowl and set aside.

Pomegranate Pesto:

1/3 cup fresh pomegranate seeds
