It turned out that it was actually much easier than I thought and of course, it tastes delicious and is a much healthier alternative to a giant bowl of spaghetti!
Start by setting your oven to 375, then cut your spaghetti squash in half lengthwise
What they don't tell you (maybe they do and I just didn't pay attention...) is how hard those suckers are!
It literally took me a carving knife, cleaver and about 20 minutes to cut it in half....
Next, scoop out the seeds from the center of each side (just channel your jack'o lantern skills from a few months ago)
Then, place the halves cut-side down on a foil lined baking sheet and bake for an hour.
When they come out, you should see browning around the edges. When they're cool enough, flip them over and let them continue to cool until they're comfortable to touch.
Once I did that, I grabbed my toppings,
and scooped some squash in a bowl and mixed it all together along with a drizzle of olive oil.
Doesn't that look amazing?! Let me just tell you, it was :)
There was a ton left over, so I'm looking for additional ways to prepare it. Do you have any spaghetti squash recipes?
