Recently, I posted a blog article on how to use spaghetti squash as a crust for a gluten free quiche. It occurred to me that you may not have cooked spaghetti squash just hanging around. In fact, you may never have prepared one. I'd like to walk you through the easy steps to cooking one. This is my favorite method.
You can opt to wash it if you like, especially if it's not organic. You won't be eating the skin though, so it's up to you.
Put the spaghetti squash onto a cutting board. Cut off the the end with the stem or where the stem was anyway. Then go ahead and slice it in half long ways. Scoop out the seeds and stringy stuff, kind of like a pumpkin. You can keep the seeds or discard them. Leave the rest of the flesh there, that's what turns into the "spaghetti."
In a glass, stoneware, or stainless steel baking dish put the squash face down. Pour one cup of water into the dish.
Bake at 350F for 40-45 minutes.
Let it cool, then flip each side over and with a spoon or fork fluff up the spaghetti type squash noodles :)
You can eat it numerous ways. Try it with marinara, alfredo sauce, pesto, in a stir fry, in a quiche or casserole.
