Spaghetti-Squash-Blog

Is it just us, or does spaghetti squash feel like one of the best-kept secrets in produce? It's spaghetti... that's squash... and all you have to do is cook the squash. Follow our easy, step-by-step instructions below.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Using a large knife, carefully cut the spaghetti squash in half. Scrape out the seeds and save them for roasting if you'd like. Place the spaghetti squash in a baking pan cut-side down. Fill the pan with about 1/2" of water and cook for 45 minutes. Using a large spatula or tongs, carefully turn the squash over and cook for 15 more minutes, or until fork-tender. Allow the squash to cool.

Once the squash is cool enough to handle, use a fork to scrape the spaghetti squash strands out. Scrape the squash halves pretty clean until you're no longer getting strands of spaghetti squash. Season the spaghetti squash with salt and pepper and a little bit of butter, top with your favorite sauce or make our Spaghetti Squash with Shiitakes, Tomato Sauce and Chard recipe.
