How to Roast Spaghetti Squash


1 large spaghetti squash

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 pinch sea salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F  and line a sheet tray with parchment paper or foil. Using the tines of a fork, prick the outside of the squash a few times and then place in the microwave on high for 3 minutes. Remove and carefully halve spaghetti squash lengthwise using a sharp knife. You may need to wait a few minutes if it is too hot to handle. Use a spoon to scrape out the seeds and most of the stringy parts.

Drizzle the interior with oil and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Place cut-side down on baking sheet. Roast for 40-45 minutes, or until a knife easily pierces the skin and flesh. Remove from oven and set aside.

Once slightly cool, flip squash flesh-side up and use a fork to scrape to create “spaghetti”.
