Super Easy! How to make Spaghetti Squash
This veggie looks more intimidating than it really is- making it super-easy to make! Right now, we are seeing all of the yummy squashes in my local store.
This to me is a true sign that it is fall and all of the yummy holidays are just around the corner.
  • 1 Spaghetti Squash
  • 1 tablespoon- additional if needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • as needed Seasonings- such as salt, salt alternatives, etc
Preheat your oven to 400 and line a baking pan with aluminum foil.Take a large knife or cleaver and slice your spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Kind of like when slicing a watermelon, make an initial gauge to get your knife in. You may need to give your squash a quick 'whack'- which is what works for me.Using a spoon, scoop out the seeds and random 'guts' that are around them. The seeds can be saved and baked like pumpkin seeds. I also save some to plant in my garden.Drizzle your olive oil over the inside of the squash. 1 tablespoon should be enough but, if you need more, use it sparinglyAdd your seasonings over the olive oilFlip your squash over- face down, on to the foil. If possible, roll up the foil edges, but not over the squash.This will prevent any drippings from leaking on to the pan.Bake for 35-40 minutes or until you are able to easily scrape the insides away from the 'shell'I've sprinkled a bit of Parmesan cheese over my squash for an extra taste. You really can just eat this the way it is without anything else.Make this in the microwave- use a baking dish without foil. Cover with plastic wrap (that is microwave safe) cook for 10-12 minutes. Some folks will just wrap the entire squash in plastic, microwave and scoop/season later.
