Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash (2-3 lbs)

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Place spaghetti squash on a baking sheet and poke with a paring knife.
  • Roast spaghetti squash whole until a paring knife sinks in easily. Around 60 minutes for a 2 lb squash and 90 minutes for a 3 lb squash.
  • Cool for 15 minutes, then slice squash in half across the middle.
  • Carefully scoop seeds out (you may want to let the squash cool further before doing so), then use a fork to gently pull the noodles from around the spaghetti squash.
