HOW TO COOK SPAGHETTI SQUASH

Pierce the whole shell several times with a large fork or skewer and place in baking dish. Cook squash in preheated 375 oven for approximately 1 hour or until flesh is tender. Let stand covered for 5 minutes. Allow squash to cool for about 20 minutes so that it will be easier to handle. Cut in half lengthwise and remove seeds. With a fork “comb” out strands.

MICROWAVE IT:

Cut squash in ½ lengthwise: remove seeds. Place squash cut sides up in a microwave dish with ¼ cup water. Remove seeds. Cover with plastic wrap and cook on high for 10-12 minutes, depending on size of squash. Let stand covered, for 5 minutes. Allow to cool for about 20 minutes so that it will be easier to handle. With a fork “comb” out strands.
