How to: Spaghetti Squash
I just had to see it to believe it. So, I bought one. And guess what? It worked! Yes, by just running a fork through the squash, I came upon healthy, flavorful, bountiful "noodles".
Here's a few tips and notes:
~When cutting the squash in half, use a super sharp knife because the raw gourd is pretty tough, and you'll want to make as straight of a cut as possible so that the squash will steam itself evenly.
~One medium-sized spaghetti squash is about the equivalent of two to two and a half cups of "noodles".
~For maximum efficiency, use a fork to get as much of the flesh out as possible, but then scrape the insides of the skins out with the edge of a large spoon to remove the remaining fruit.
So, Heres the technique
1 medium spaghetti squash
1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees (Fahrenheit)
2) Cut squash in half length-wise.
3) Line a baking tray with foil, and place the squash cut-side down over foil.
4) Bake for forty minutes, or until the squash has become as tender as you'd like it.
