How to Cook Spaghetti Squash

Here at home we like to eat spaghetti squash quite often. It took me awhile for James to talk me into trying it for the first time. How can a squash taste like pasta? Surprisingly, it does! Here are a few ways to cook it. I usually do mine in the microwave but I've done it in the oven as well. 


Pierce the squash all over then nuke it for around 10-15 minutes. 
Then leave it in the microwave for another 5. 
Take it out the cut it in half, width wise, not top to bottom you will get longer strands this way.
Scrape out the seeds and guts. 

Use a fork to scrape all the "noodles" out. 
Serve with sauce or what ever you like.


Preheat to 375f. 
Cut squash in half. I cut it length wise as it sits in a pan better this way. 
Scrape out the seeds and guts.
Lay cut side down on bake dish.
Bake for 35-40 minutes. 

Let it rest about 5 minutes then scrape the strings out with a fork. 
Serve with what ever you like.
