How to Cook Spaghetti Squash
Learn how to cook spaghetti squash in the microwave or oven for a fabulous alternative to pasta without any spiralizers or gadgets! Simply cook the squash and watch the flesh pull out in long spaghetti-like strings. You can use spaghetti squash as a grain-free or low carb substitute for any pasta or create spaghetti squash boats topped with your favorite sauces/toppings. Any way you serve it, spaghetti squash is DELICIOUS!
The spaghetti squash is done when you can easily insert a knife into the skin. If you aren’t sure if the squash is done, pull it out of the oven, flip a half over and drag a fork across the center. If the strands easily pull away, the squash is done. If not, continue to roast, checking every 5-10 minutes. You don’t want to roast your squash too long because this can lead to soggy or mushy “spaghetti” instead of al dente.
