Spaghetti Squash Recipes
Spaghetti Squash Recipes – Let’s talk about spaghetti squash for a while. I’m working on a new spaghetti squash recipe (coming Friday), and I noticed there are several different ways that people suggest to cook spaghetti squash.
Here is the method: Bake or microwaved whole, steamed in a pot of water in the oven, sliced into rings, divided two lengthwise or transverse, baked on top or bottom.

All of those options will work, but I have a strong preference for one method, which reduces the amount of moisture in the flask and produces gold, caramel edges that add extra flavor.
Here’s my trick: Cut spaghetti squash into two halves from the tip of the stem to the base, rub the inside with a little olive oil, and bake with the cut section down. There’s more to it (see recipe below), but that’s the point.
It’s easy, right? No fuss, no porridge, spaghetti squash that was tender and delicious! In this way, the moisture can pool over the pan instead of collecting inside the squash spaghetti, and you end up with a perfect built-in bowl that you can fill with toppings.

I’m glad we can solve this problem, because spaghetti squash is a nutritious winter vegetable that offers plenty of fiber, beta-carotene, folate, and more. It offers a very pleasing spaghetti-like texture and a built-in bowl shape. See how I turn it into a burrito bowl?
Spaghetti squash is a good paste for pasta, and can also be played well with a variety of other flavors. It goes very well with tomato and tomato sauce, Parmesan or other cheeses, garlic, onions, basil, peppers, carrots, mushrooms, thyme and vinegar (balsamic, sherry, red or white wine vinegar).

This is the best way to cook spaghetti squash! Cut into two, take the seeds, rub a little olive oil and salt on the inside, and bake in the oven on the cut side.

- spaghetti squash
- teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
- Sprinkle salt and pepper
- To prepare spaghetti squash, heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and place a large baking sheet with bread paper for easy cleaning.
- Use a very sharp chef knife to cut the top and bottom edge of spaghetti squash. Stand perpendicular to a stable surface and carefully sliced from top to bottom to divide it into two.
- Use a large spoon to scoop up the seeds of the spaghetti pumpkin and discard them. Sprinkle the inside of each half of the pumpkin with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and apply it all over the inside, add more oil if necessary. Sprinkle salt and pepper lightly over the interior of the pumpkin, then place on a prepared pan.
- Bake for 40 to 60 minutes, until the cut side turns golden and the inside is easily pierced with a fork. The little pumpkin will be done faster than the big pumpkin, of course!
- After the pumpkin is cooked, put the interior with a fork to make the inside look like spaghetti. Serve as desired.
SUGGESTED SUGGESTIONS: Baked pumpkin spaghetti will be stored well in the refrigerator, closed, up to 5 days. Preheat before serving.
