I've seen spaghetti squash at the store before but never knew how to make it and didn't know you could actually eat it as a pasta substitute. Well folks, I'm happy to report that in fact, spaghetti squash can be used in place of spaghetti. After this past week of indulging in Thanksgiving festivities I bring you this recipe at the perfect time. How do you make it, you ask?
Well it's simple. Cut your spaghetti squash lengthwise and remove the strings and seeds. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place your squash (cut side up) in a baking dish. Cook for 35 minutes or until your squash is tender.
Now comes the fun part -- take a fork and scrape along the squash to get "noodles". You will be shocked at how much you can get from just one side. Repeat for the other half.
Garnish with some olive oil, crushed black pepper and fresh Parmesan cheese. I added some pesto to mine and it was delicious. I didn't miss the normal spaghetti at all!
