Spaghetti Squash

Total Cost by weight approx: $4.00 Makes 8 Servings
  • Take the Squash, Cut in half length wise
  • Remove the seeds, rinse out the inside, and discard
  • Cover with saran wrap
  • Microwave each half for 10 minutes on high
  • Remove from microwave and drain juices

Serving Suggestions:
  • You can scoop out the inside and place in a bowl. It is stringy like spaghetti. Serve with any dish as a side instead of pasta or potato. If I serve it this way I usually sprinkle a little basil, salt, pepper, or Parmesan.
  • The other way I like to serve it is just take a fork and pull the squash away from the sides, and stir it around. Pour inside of it any kind of sauce, or a dish that you have made, just put it right inside the squash boat. Sprinkle on top some cheese and bake it until the cheese melts on 400°
There is really no rule to squash, just put on it whatever you like! The biggest misunderstanding about cooking and eating squash is that you have to serve it with butter, oils, and sugar but it does not need any of those things it has a sweet taste and lots of its own juices. It is a very healthy alternative to carbohydrates.
