  • 1 spaghetti squash


  • Preheat oven to 425.
  • You will need to cut your spaghetti squash length-wise. We like to to do this on one of the lines you can see down the squash.
  • To best cut, perforate the squash along the line with a knife or fork. You can try to cut along that line, but if it's too hard microwave for 5-6 minutes first.
  • If you microwave, it will be hot, but use a towel to hold it on a cutting board and cut down the line.
  • Scoop out seeds as well as the stringy bits of flesh using a spoon. You can discard or roast those.
  • Place spaghetti squash, cut sides down, on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for about 35 - 40 minutes or until a sharp knife can be inserted with little resistance. 
  • Once slightly cooled, used a fork or spoon to pull the flesh from the sides and watch it start to string and look like spaghetti. Serve with sauce.
