How to Cook Spaghetti Squash

Happy weekend everyone!

After being gone on vacation for a few days, we have been ready to enjoy some home cooked meal! Tonight I decided to try something completely new for our household – baked spaghetti squash casserole. I will post this recipe later this weekend 🙂

Before I could make the baked spaghetti squash casserole, I had to do research on spaghetti squash seeing as I have NEVER made this or consumed it! After learning more about it, we headed to the local grocery store to find it. Surprisingly, it was extremely easy to make!

I threw the spaghetti squash into the microwave whole for about a minute so that it would be easier to cut. First, cut off both ends and then make a cut straight down the middle length wise.

Your spaghetti squash will then resemble the inside of a pumpkin. Use a spoon to scoop all the seeds and guts out of the middle. Then place each half, face down on a baking sheet. Cook the spaghetti squash on 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.

Once it is done, let the spaghetti squash cool for a few minutes before using a fork to pull up the angel hair like strands of squash. Place the pieces into a large bowl.

It was actually a lot easier to scoop out the squash than I had anticipated 🙂 Not bad for my first time if I do say so myself! Enjoy!
