How to make Spaghetti Squash

How to make a spaghetti squash:

1) Wash squash off!
(You should wash all fruits and veggies off before cutting into them, as the knife will bring bacteria from the outside of the veggie into the flesh. This is especially important if you're eating the fruit or veggie raw, and one of the reasons Cantaloupe can be such a big cause of illness like e. coli.)

2) Slice squash in half long-ways and scoop out the seeds.

3) Place squash in a wax-paper lined dish, cut-side down, and bake for about 45 minutes at 350F, or until inside is tender enough for a fork to easily slice through to the peel.

4) When cooled, take a fork and scrape/rake the inside of the squash. This will release the squash in long strands, much like spaghetti.

Voila! You've made a spaghetti squash!

  1. This is a great way to make spaghetti squash kid friendly. By preparing this way, the strands are shorter. To have longer stands, cut the spaghetti squash into rings from top to bottom. You will still remove the seeds. You will have longer strands because that is the direction that the strands grow inside the squash. Bake rings as directed and flip them halfway through. The strands should separate very easily.

  2. We love spaghetti squash! I like to throw it in the crock pot for a few hours! Delish!

  3. I tried this and it was pretty good!
