I cook a lot with spaghetti squash and I’m often asked HOW to cook it so I’ve put together a quick tutorial to show you how easy it is to cook spaghetti squash. The second most asked question is what to do with the spaghetti squash after its cooked. There are lots of options once the spaghetti squash is cooked, but the easiest way to serve it is to treat it just like spaghetti noodles and toss with marinara sauce. I’ll share lots of other ways to serve spaghetti squash after I show you how to cook it.
Cut the spaghetti squash in half, length wise.
Scoop out all the seeds. I use a melon baller to easily remove seeds from the squash.
Place the squash cut side down on a baking pan.
Cook in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until done. Insert a fork into the squash to check for tenderness.
The squash may be a little brown on the edges. That is completely fine.
Using a fork, scrape the squash away from the shell.
The squash will look like short “noodles”.
A medium squash will easily feed a family of 3 or 4, depending on how hungry your crew is.
See, didn’t I tell you it was easy? Now, here’s the best part, fun ways to serve spaghetti squash:
