Herbed Spaghetti Squash

1 medium spaghetti squash
cup water
3 Tbsp butter or margarine
vegetable broth (can use chicken broth)
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp oregano
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cut squash in half lengthwise (be careful as they can be difficult to cut).  Remove the seeds.  Put water in the bottom of a baking dish and put the squash in cut side down.  Cover with foil and bake for about 1 hour.  Remove squash from the oven and allow it to cool slightly while you put together the sauce.  Combine butter / margarine, broth, thyme and oregano in a small saucepan until heated through.   Use a fork to shred the spaghetti squash into strands and place in large bowl.  Pour sauce, salt and pepper over and toss to coat.   Serve with parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top, if desired.
