Recipes for free: Parmesan asiago spaghetti squash

I tastespotted this Spaghetti Squash w/ Parmesan recipe and knew I had to make my own version.  This recipe was my first time cooking with spaghetti squash and it definitely will not be my last. Outside of roasting the squash my meal came together in less than 30 minutes. Surprisingly, it is the perfect low cal/low carb substitute for real pasta. I am in love. Check out my recipe below.

1/4 cup shredded Asiago cheese
2 tablespoons cooking wine
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons earth balance
