Preparing Spaghetti Squash
  • 1-2 spaghetti squash
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350F, place a rack in the lower third of the oven.
  2. Wash squash and pat dry.
  3. Slice squash in half lengthwise (I like to start halfway down, then flip it and do the second half - makes it a little easier to cut through those tough skins).
  4. Scrape out seeds (save them to roast like you would pumpkin seeds or save to plant in your garden).
  5. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil.
  6. Place cut side down on a baking sheet.
  7. Bake at 350F for 45-60 minutes, or until flesh pulls away from skin easily with a fork.
  8. Scrape squash flesh out of skin with a fork (or leave in skin and top with desired toppings).
One squash will generally serve 2 people. There's a lot more food there than you might think!
