How to Cook Spaghetti Squash!

Hellllllllo there! Today I am at a day long conference called…Women’s Health Conversations! I can’t wait to hear some of the speakers, I will let you know what I learn!

I am not even sure if I should call this post a “recipe”.  That’s how easy this is.  And…I am such a bad impatient blogger, I forgot to take pictures!! Whoops! This week, I was determined to turn my house into a healthy one once again.  So Tuesday night, I made spaghetti squash with delicious veggie marinara sauce.  It was so simple and so incredibly good.

Spaghetti squash is not a replacement for pasta, don’t be fooled.  BUT it is delicious in its own way. I promise! However, it is pasta like in the way it looks, but much better for us. With only about 42 calories and 10 total carbohydrates per cup, I think its a winner! And, its packed with vitamin C and vitamin B-6.

How did I cook mine:

  1. Preheat oven–400 Degrees
  2. Cut (I used medium sized) squash in half length wise
  3. Sprinkle squash with salt and pepper to taste
  4. Place flesh side down in glass baking dish
  5. Fill up baking dish with 1 inch water
  6. Cook for about 40-45 minutes
  7. Once done, carefully hold squash and with a fork, scrape out the squash.  (This is the fun part)

I served ours with my homemade veggie marinara I had in the freezer (recipe coming soon).  My mom will often stir-fry hers with shrimp and other veggies….its so versatile!

There ya have it, how I cook my squash! It can also be done in the microwave, but I think this way it better if you have the time! How do you prepare your spaghetti squash?
