Spaghetti squash is a delicious substitution for pasta in many dishes. This recipe offers advice on how to roast a spaghetti squash to be used as an ingredient with your favorite toppings.
Ingredients
  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Slice your spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Be sure to exercise caution and use a sharpened chef's knife for the task since this vegetable is a tough one to slice.
  3. Scoop out and discard the seeds from the squash.
  4. Brush the flesh with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Invert your squash on the cooking sheet, flesh side down.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes.
  7. Pull the squash out and carefully flip your squash so that the flesh is now upright. Bake again for ten more minutes.
  8. Pull the squash out and let it rest for 10-20 minutes. The resting is very important so that the strings of flesh pull out and look like noodles.
  9. Taking a fork gently glide it inside the flesh of the squash and pull the fork down lengthwise, separating the flesh from the skin.
  10. Top the spaghetti squash strands with your favorite pasta toppings or incorporate it in your recipes. See notes above for freezer storage.
