1 Spaghetti Squash
2 Tb. Olive Oil
So many of my recipes call for Spaghetti Squash as an ingredient. This is how I prepare my spaghetti squash. It is simple and a FANTASTIC alternative to noodles. Here is how I make my spaghetti squash.
I first start by picking out a spaghetti squash. I want it to be a nice yellow color and not too large. A little smaller than a adult size football. I then bust out my best knife and my cutting board. You will need muscles for this part. Cut the squash in half.
After the squash is scraped and cleaned, you will want to drizzle the squash with a GOOD olive oil. Then salt and pepper the squash. I get my hands messy and just massage the oil/salt/pepper mixture into the meat of the squash.
Place the squash inside down onto a foil lined baking sheet. Place in a 375 degree oven and bake for about 1 hour. The flesh of the squash will be easy to pierce with a fork and the meat will be tender.
