How to Cook a Whole Spaghetti Squash [video]
Screen Shot 2013-09-10 at 1.47.48 PM

Sorry, this took me longer than I expected. I had to find about 2 hours to cook the squash and record so I can show you the process.

This is my new technique. I used to do it in the microwave which is still a great alternative when you’re in a hurry, but the texture does comes out better in the oven.

Oh! and watch the end. I put in a cute clip of Little Bean. :)

In a nutshell in case you don’t want to watch the whole video:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Slice off a small bit of the flesh so it doesn’t roll.
  3. Place the whole squash on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake for 60-90 minutes until the flesh is soft to the tough.
  5. Cut and let cool.
  6. Scoop out the seeds and pulp.
  7. Viola!

    Hmm I don’t know. Never really thought about it. I pierce it when I cook in the microwave but sometimes I forget when baking. I slice the flesh just to prevent wobbling. You could still pierce it too.

    I am SO getting a speghetti squash tomorrow when I go shopping and cooking it. I love squash but have never tried this variety. Thanks so much for posting this video.

    Do you have a recipe for the pasta sauce that you use with it? I need a lighter version of spaghetti sauce than I’m used to. Thanks!

    After watching this video I’m even more convinced that microwaving spaghetti squash is the most efficient way to cook one. I DO love your recipe though. We all love spaghetti squash. Thanks for posting!!!
