This is spaghetti squash – so many good nutrients for you but how do you cook it?
Here is how I make a super simple spaghetti squash.
Since it is very hard to cut I pop it in the microwave for a little bit. Slice little slits into the squash to serve as little air vents. Throw in the microwave for 5 to 7 minutes until the skin of the squash is a little soft. Then slice it length-wise and scoop out the seeds. Place both sides face down in a baking dish with about a 1/4 cup of water. Microwave for about 10 to 15 minutes. Then you are able to take a fork and scrap the squash and pull out strains of “spaghetti.”
Looks like this –
Top it with some marinara sauce and parmesan cheese – yummy!
This is very good and very filling – you can eats lots for very little calories but also get a ton of vitamin A, C, fiber and many more!
Dinner can be made in 20 minutes or less – plus you will get a ton of “spaghetti” out of one little squash to feed the family!
