How to Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Have you ever looked at a spaghetti squash at the store and thought how great it would be to get one if only you knew how to cook it? Well, I don’t want that to happen anymore to you! Go buy that squash, and then follow these tips!

1. Wash and dry your squash (even if you’re not eating the skin, your knife touches it on its way through! Whatever bacteria are living on the outside go right into the part you eat.)


2. Slice off the stem.


3. Stand the squash upright on the now-flat stem side, and slice it in half lengthwise. I’m not great at cutting things exactly in half, but you get the idea. 🙂


4. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Save to roast (just like pumpkin seeds!) of discard if you want.


5. Brush the rims with a little oil and place flesh side down on a parchment or baking mat lined baking sheet.


6. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until the flesh is soft; about an hour depending on size. Allow to cool. Scrape out the flesh and fluff with a fork. Enjoy it as is or with your favorite marinara sauce!


Yum!

Healthy, happy eating!
