Spaghetti Squash

If you have never tried spaghetti squash, you are really missing out! This stuff is delicious!!!  You can eat it just like spaghetti, sauce and all. We like to eat it with just butter, salt and pepper.

You will need someone strong to get into this sucker. Or at least a really good knife. It has a really thick skin, but once you are in, you are good to go.

Spaghetti Squash

1 spaghetti squash
toppings:  Spaghetti sauce or butter, salt and pepper etc.

Slice squash in half length wise.  Core out the seeds/pulp, like you would a pumpkin etc.  Discard pulp. Put squash on a cookie sheet rind side down. Cook at 375 degrees for 35-40 min. (you can also microwave it for 6-8 minutes)

Allow to sit for a few minutes.  Scrape the strands out by running a fork through it from end to end of the peel.  Serve with spaghetti sauce or butter, salt and pepper.  Enjoy!

I just tried this amazing squash for the first time last week. We just put the squash, totally whole, into a giant pot and boiled for 45-60 minutes. Once you gut into it, it strings apart with the fork beautifully. Ate it with some pesto alfredo pasta and I like the sauce over the squash more than the pasta!
