How to cook a spaghetti squash
A few people asked me how to cook it so this is how I do it!
What you’re going to need:
- A spaghetti squash. I feel like this one is obvious.
- A GOOD knife.
- Some plastic wrap.
- A fork and spoon.
- A microwave.
- Something to put it all in.. a container of some sort.
What you’re gonna do:
Take the spaghetti squash
Cut it in half!
It may take a while. They are really hard to cut.
It should look like this!
Now you’re going to take a spoon and dig out the seeds like you would do with a pumpkin. This is the biggest pain in the ass. Some people like to bake the seeds but I don’t like them so I just threw them away. Sorry.
Now it should look like this!
Now you’re going to take some plastic wrap and cover the squash. Like so.
Now pop it in the microwave [one at a time] for 6-7 minutes each depending on how big it is. I did 6 minutes for these. After they are done, take them out, remove the plastic wrap and let them cool for a while. They’re SUPER hot. Please use oven mits to take them out of the microwave. You can thank me later.
After they’re cooled, or cool enough to handle, get your bowl and fork. You’re going to scrape the squash out of the.. squash and into the bowl. It should look a little something like this
That’s all! Super easy!
Now you have a crap load of spaghetti squash to enjoy! If you’re like me it will last you 2-3 days max. As for the actual eating of it, I never put sauce on the whole thing because I like mine different each time. Sometimes I make mac n cheese with it, sometimes with soy sauce and veggies, sometimes with light butter and grated cheese!
It’s about 42 calories per cup for plain spaghetti squash. Enjoy!
I’ll save this area for people who do it differently:
“if you cook it before cutting out the seeds/guts they come out really easily! I do mine a little differently instead of cutting it in half I just stab it a bunch of times and cook it full, flipping it over halfway =] easy to cut, easy to gut”
