Now let’s get cooking. Begin by preheating the oven to 400F. Wash the squash and cut it in half. Scoop out the seeds from the inside with a spoon. Pro tip: save the squash seeds and roast them up with some olive oil and a pinch of salt to eat throughout the week as a healthy snack. Make 5-10 slits on the inside of each half of squash with a knife. Rub a tablespoon of olive oil into each half and sprinkle it with salt. Place squash on a baking sheet and put in the oven. Pour the water onto the bottom of the pan and bake up for about 45 minutes. While that is baking, cook the couscous according to package directions. Saute the onions and garlic for 3-4 minutes in a separate pan. Add the couscous and beans and season with oregano, pepper, and a bit of salt. Once the squash is finished, mix the inside up with a fork, add the couscous and beans, and top off with some grated parm. Bake for another 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is perfectly melted.
