Steps

1
In a glass baking dish, put the squash halves, cut side down, pour 1/4 cup water around it, and cover this dish tightly with microwave-safe plastic wrap.
2
Microwave the squash at high powder for 12 minutes, or until it is soft when pressed, and let it stand, covered, for 3 minutes.
3
In a large bowl mix together the oil, basil, oregano, and the Parmesan, stir in the tomatoes, and season the mixture with salt and pepper.
4
While the squash is still warm scrape it with a fork to form strands, add the strands to the tomato mixture and toss.

Serve!
