Instructions

  1. 1
    Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. 2
    Wash your squash then carefully cut it lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and pith, then quarter it (this will give you a faster baking time, but you can leave them in halves and serve in the shell.)
  3. 3
    Line your baking sheet with tin foil and with clean hands, cover every surface of your squash slices with oil. Also get a good coating of oil on the tin foil. Place the squash cut-side up on the foiled and oiled pan and bake for 30-40 minutes.
  4. 4
    When the squash can be easily pierced by a fork and has browned slightly at the edges, it will be done.
  5. 5
    Pierce the meat of the baked squash with a fork and draw the fork towards yourself. This will pull the strands away from the shell.
  6. 6
    Scrape all of the spaghetti out of each shell, season to taste with salt and pepper and then top with your favorite pasta sauce.

step 1
Spaghetti squash is a squash that, when baked and cut correctly, has the exact same texture as--you guessed it--spaghetti! When baked, it is perfect to top with your favorite pasta sauce and can be a great way to hide vegetables for picky eaters. Once you have mastered the technique, you can replace cooked pasta in any recipe with this tasty vegetable as a gluten-free, vegan or paleo alternative.
