Cut the Squash
Using a sharp knife, cut off the extremities of the spaghetti squash. Stand the squash upright on the benchtop, placing a chopping board under it, and cut the squash lengthwise to divide it in half.
Use a tablespoon to scrape out all the spaghetti squash seeds and discard them.
Brush, Cook the Squash
Brush the cut side of each squash with olive oil or spray oil all over. Place each half squash, cut-side down, onto the prepared baking tray. Bake the squash for 30-40 minutes in an oven preheated to 400°F (200°C).
Scrape the Flesh
Remove from the oven, flip over the two squashes using an oven mitten to avoid burning yourself. Let the steam evaporate for 10 minutes. Then, keeping the oven mitten on, hold the squash with one hand and pull apart the spaghetti with a fork, scraping the flesh.
Put in Dish
Place all the spaghetti noodles into the prepared baking dish. Spread evenly to cover the dish. Set aside while making the sauce.
Make the Alfredo Sauce
In a small saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Stir in heavy cream, crushed garlic, salt, pepper, and shredded Parmesan cheese. Stir and cook on low heat, simmering the sauce for 1-3 minutes until cheese is melted and the sauce thickens and strings of cheese form.
Assemble the Casserole
Pour the sauce all over the baking dish containing the baked spaghetti squash noodles and use a spoon to combine the sauce with the vegetable spaghetti. Stir well to make sure all the noodles are covered with the sauce.
Add shredded mozzarella all over the baking dish and bake at 350°F (180°C) for 15 minutes. Then, if cheese is not broiled yet, switch the oven to broil mode for 1-2 minutes to broil the cheese on top.
