How to Cut & Cook Spaghetti Squash

There is a proper way to cut a squash, and I’ve been doing it wrong! Not that’s there’s a right or wrong way, it will still be edible- but if you want to make long spaghetti like strands, here’s the trick!

PREP TIME
5 mins
COOK TIME
40 mins
TOTAL TIME
45 mins

Serves: 4-6

INGREDIENTS
1 spaghetti squash, the fatter the better

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Slice squash widthwise into 1″ rings. Run a knife around the interior or the rings to remove the seeds. 3. Place rings on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 40 minutes.
4. Allow to cool for 15 minutes, then peel the skin away and separate the strands into long “noodles”.
5. Enjoy topped with your favorite sauce or mix 50/50 with regular spaghetti pasta for a “medium-carb” option.
