  1. Heat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Cut the squash in half lengthwise with a sharp chef’s knife.
  3. Scrape out the seeds and seed flesh with a spoon and discard.
  4. Pour 1/2 cup water into a 9-x13-inch baking dish, and place the squash cut-side down in the water.
  5. Roast for 45 minutes or until tender.
  6. In a heavy skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until the edges crisp.
  7. Add the onions and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, or until soft and beginning to brown.
  8. Remove from the heat.
  9. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, then whisk in the ricotta. Fold in the cooked bacon and onions, then 1 cup of grated cheese and the salt and pepper.
  10. When the squash can be easily pierced with a fork, remove it from the oven and turn the heat up to 375°F.

  12. Pour out any water left in the baking dish, wipe it dry, and grease it lightly with cooking spray.

  14. Mix the squash strings into the egg-and-onion mixture.
  15. Spread in the baking dish and top with the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese.
