  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise with a sharp knife.
  • Using a spoon, scoop the seeds out and place them into a bowl.
  • Rub the inside of both squash halves with oil and place cut side down onto a baking sheet.
  • Bake the squash in the oven for 40 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork.
  • Use a fork to fluff the baked spaghetti once baked.
  • Enjoy as desired.


recipe tips: If the squash is too hard to cut you can nuke it in the microwave before cutting in half. This will soften it and make it easier to cut. Try scoring the squash with a knife all around before cutting, just like when carving a pumpkin. Store leftover squash in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. Use parchment paper on your baking sheet if you don't want to have a mess, otherwise, we recommend using a good quality baking sheet that is easy to clean. We buy USA pans.
