We LOVE spaghetti squash and I actually prefer it in place of noodles – hence my love of Spaghetti Squash Casserole. The texture is different, but it’s very pleasing to the palate…yeah, country Stacy just said that. It felt weird too. I’ve even been able to serve it to people and they didn’t know they weren’t eating REAL noodles. Cooking spaghetti squash is easy…so let’s talk about how it’s done.
I’ve had several of you leave comments and send me emails about cooking spaghetti squash – you want to know how I do it…so, here’s a video of my method.
Also, I will warn you – toward the end, all craziness breaks loose in the Myers house. You’ve been warned…so proceed with caution.
Cooking a Spaghetti Squash – the Basic Steps
Halve your squash using a large knife. Be careful. I cut mine vertically. Scrape out seeds. Place cut side down on large baking tray. Add a small amount of water for steam. Cook at 350 until you can “pull the noodles” down from the side. (See video). This can take 30-60 minutes based on the size of the squash.
Once you’ve got it all cooked, there’s nothing to do but serve! It really is that easy. 🙂
“Pro” tip: if you have space for a garden but generally kill everything you plant, consider some spaghetti squash. They are pretty easy to grow and require very little tending. If I’m recommending that, you know it has to be easy!
Okay, now you have no excuse to not go and try it. Go forth and start cooking spaghetti squash!
