How to cook a Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash use to sound slightly intimidating, until I made it for the first time and now I’m hooked.  I cook a squash weekly and have the “noodles” readily available for any carb fix I might need.  There are a few methods you can use to cook the squash; boil, microwave or bake, this recipe is how to bake it in the oven. On average I buy a 3-4lb squash.

Pierce the whole center of the exterior skin all the way through until you get to the center of the squash several times with a large fork or skewer.

Place in a baking dish with 1 cup water


Cook squash in preheated 375°F oven approximately 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until flesh is tender. 

Allow the squash to cool for at least 30 minutes before carefully slicing open, there will be steam.
