I always try to cook in season and spaghetti squash is such a fun & simple vegetable to cook up!
This is a basic recipe that you can roast in the oven and decide how you want to serve it after it’s cooked. Sometimes I opt for spaghetti squash plain with some light butter or olive oil, but you can always add some parmesan cheese or serve it like pasta with sauce and meatballs! Yum.
The options are endless! What’s even better about this delicious squash it nutritional value… it has tons of vitamins and is low in calories & carbs! Check out how simple this is…
1 medium Spaghetti Squash
Salt & Pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut spaghetti squash in 1/2 (long ways). Add salt & pepper. Place on a baking sheet with the cut side up and roast for 1 hour. Take a fork and scrape the squash from the skin. It should look like spaghetti as you pull it apart! Place in a bowl and add whatever toppings you prefer!
