How to Cook Spaghetti Squash

One of my favorite staples is spaghetti squash. With a cup of squash having 5.5g of net carbs and tons of toppings options, I highly recommend you give it a try!

Step 1. Cut vents into sides of spaghetti squash. Microwave for about 5 minutes. Use a tea towel to pull the spaghetti squash from the microwave, as it will be very warm. Preheat your oven to 425F.

Step 2. When cool, cut the spaghetti squash in half along the longer side of the gourd. Be careful with your knife as the rind of the spaghetti squash is tough. If not making any head way, microwave for a few more minutes.

Step 3. Using a spoon, remove the seeds from the inside of the spaghetti squash.

Step 4. Generously coat the inside of the spaghetti squash with oil. Doesn’t matter what kind. Palm oil is usually never good, but other then that, I’m not the boss of you.

Step 5. Place the spaghetti squash face down on a cookie sheet. Put cookie sheet in the oven that should be preheated by now to 425F. Add about a cup of water to the cookie sheet, otherwise I find the edges to over cook a little bit and dry out.

Step 6. Cook your spaghetti squash for about 30 minutes. To test if it is done, use a fork to gently flip the squash over. If you can easily stick your fork into the squash innards, then your done! Remove the squash from the oven, and using your fork, loosen the inside of the squash. The insides will look like spaghetti! You can now add whatever toppings you see fit to your “spaghetti”!

    1. Thank you so much! I plan on adding nutrition information, but the easiest way is with a plugin. However, you have to upgrade to a business account for plugins, and I don’t want to monetize this site. So… Check back for new upgrades once I can pay for the business account! ☺️
