Spaghetti squash

Someone asked me how to make spaghetti squash. It is really yummy by itself or u can use it as a pasta substitute in spaghetti. This is what it looks like. To cook, its simple. Slice lengthwise in half. scrape out and throw away the seeds.
The sticker on the squash usually tells u the temp and time. But I do it this way... place open side down in half inch of water in casserole dish (usually 9x13) in oven and bake at 350-375 for 45-60 minutes. When it comes out, simply take a fork and run it down the squash thus pulling out the strands of "spaghetti".

When served as a side I like it simply with salt and pepper. Sometimes a little butter. W loves it with brown sugar (of course). When used to replace pasta, just put it on your plate and put the sauce on top-simple and yummy. and good for ya!


  1. That's funny, H-Bomb made me buy a spaghetti squash the other day. I'm not a big fan of them, but I'll give it another try! It's been years since I had that variety...

  2. You can do pretty much the same thing in the microwave for like 25-30 minutes. I LOVE spaghetti squash but DH doesn't like it so I rarely get it. Just let me know next time you make it and I will head over to your place for dinner that day =)

  3. I have never heard that trick. I will DEFINITELY be trying it though because we love squash and we love spagetti and I love ways to make recipes healthier!
    and thanks for the pictures too...that really helps me visualize what you're talking about!

  4. Making this for dinner tonight!! I'm about to put my squash in the oven right now! Hope it turns out!

  5. Thank you for sharing!!! I've always wondered how to make that.
