If you’ve never tried Spaghetti Squash, I highly recommend you add this to your veggie eating repertoire.
For the record, I don’t think I can pull off correctly pronouncing the word repertoire. I just thought that sentence sounded better than me simply stating, “Yo. You should totally eat Spaghetti Squash.”
We were blessed with several fantastic spaghetti squash in our garden this summer and fall. I’m not sure there’s a better meal than home grown spaghetti squash, served with sauce made from home grown tomatoes. It’s delicious! Plus, practically free. Plus, super healthy. It’s merveilleux! ( I can’t pronounce that either, but it means “wonderful” in French. In other words: YUM.)
How to Cook Spaghetti Squash
1. Rinse outside of the squash.
2. Poke squash with a knife or fork 3-4 times.
3. Place squash in a baking dish, uncovered.
4. Bake in a 350° for 45-60 minutes or until squash is tender.
5. Cut squash in half to open.
6. Pull out seeds and discard.
7. Use a fork to pull “spaghetti” away from the inside of the rind. (This is the fun part!)
8. Serve cooked spaghetti squash as is, or serve with your favorite red or white sauce.
