How do you cook spaghetti squash?
I just slice it open in several pieces like you would a cantaloupe and boil them in water. Once it's soft, drain water. Let cool a bit and then peel away the outer skin. Add your favorite sauce.
I wash it, poke holes in it, and microwave it for about 8 minutes.
I like to cut it lengthwise in half and seed it, carefully though you don't want to loose too many strands. Then into the oven at 350 degrees F for about a half hour, cut side down. Let cool enough to handle, then scrape the insides with a fork to make your "spaghetti" strands. Toss with your favorite sauce or maybe some olive oil, garlic, feta. SO good! Enjoy
I grow spaghetti squash and have tons all summer. My favorite recipe is to cut length wise, spoon out seeds, score the squash, apply a mixture of butter or a healthy spread and brown sugar and a little pumpkin pie spice.
Cover with plastic wrap and microwave until tender. You may also cover with foil instead of plastic wrap and bake on 350 until tender. This is requested for all the family gatherings during the summer.
