Spaghetti Squash

Last year one of our neighbors gave us a spaghetti squash, and I'll be honest, I had no idea how to cook it! Thanks to Google, I followed the simplest recipe and we used it in place of pasta for spaghetti. We all fell in love and decided to grow our own this year!
Our first harvest! 

Simple directions: 
Wash, cut lengthwise, scoop out flesh, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper, bake at 375-degrees until fork insert easily (usually between 40-90 minutes depending on squash size). 

Remove from oven and let cool enough to handle. 
Using fork, scrape flesh lengthwise, should peel easily, resembling spaghetti. 

Voila! Noodles to be used for any pasta dish!

What do you do with spaghetti squash?

  1. I toss mine with butter parmesan and garlic. Then I tell the kids we are eating worms. They always crack up.

  2. I love spaghetti squash! I like to just toss it with marinara in place of the pasta. It's so neat how the "noodles" come out of the squash like that!
