If you like pasta and vegetables then you are going to love this Baked Spaghetti Squash. This vegetable is almost like a forgotten one. It kinda hangs out in the produce section of the grocery store along with the other forgotten squashes like Acorn and Butternut Squash.
I grew a bunch of these back in the Spring. They store really well in the pantry or in your root cellar.
How To Cut a Spaghetti Squash
Place the squash on a cutting board long ways. Carefully, cut down the middle with a knife. Separate the two sections. Grab a spoon and scrape out the seeds.

How To Cook Spaghetti Squash
Drizzle olive oil over each squash section and add salt and pepper. Place the squash cut side down onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
Once your squash is done, remove it from the oven and flip both sides over. Using a fork, pull the squash towards you. It will resemble thin strands, like spaghetti. Now it’s ready to be enjoyed!
How To Serve
I like eating Spaghetti Squash with Authentic Italian Sunday Sauce. It’s perfect if you don’t feel like having pasta or I combine the two sometimes.
It is also great served as a side dish. Just drizzle maple syrup on top of the cooked squash, sprinkle freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top. Broil for five minutes in the oven. So delicious!
