Cooking Spaghetti Squash

My family and I try to incorporate lots of veggies into our meals. Sometimes my kids know they are there and other times they don't. For example, I decided to mix spaghetti squash with their whole wheat spaghetti noodles.

I usually opt to eat spaghetti squash to cut down on carbs, so I rave about it often to my family and friends. It's healthy, low in calories, and resembles pasta...uhhh SCORE! The question I am always asked is: "How the heck do you cook it?"

Simple!!!!

  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Cut spaghetti squash in half (lengthwise)
  3. Place squash on baking sheet, cut sides down. 
  4. Bake for 35 minutes or until tender.

Once the spaghetti squash is cooked, scoop the seeds out (don't burn yourself). Some people like to scoop the seeds out before they bake it but I find it easier to do once it's cooked.

Next, scrape the inside of squash with a fork. Either place all your "noodles" in a bowl and season them or you can serve as you go.

Top your "noodles" with whatever your tummy desires. I like to add Muir Glen Organic pasta sauce and 99% fat free ground turkey. Mmm mmm mmmm!!
