I like this recipe because it is very easy to make, very good for me if I don't add the butter and quite delicious. I also enjoy the ending when the cooked squash seemingly turns into spaghetti!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (1 lb) spaghetti squash
  • 3 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 3 -4 tablespoons dark honey (warmed slightly to be runny) or 3 -4 tablespoons maple syrup (may be substituted if you are out of honey)
  • 2 tablespoons butter (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Farenheit.
  2. Cut the spaghetti squash in half and clean out seeds.
  3. Do not peel, do not chop.
  4. Simply mix the minced ginger with the warmed honey or maple syrup (I prefer the honey) and spread generously on each cleaned out half of the squash.
  5. Bake uncovered, cut side up on a cookie sheet in the center of the oven for 20-30 minutes or until it becomes slightly golden, but not burned.
  6. Remove from oven and using a fork, scrape out the squash in"spaghetti strands" onto a serving plate.
  7. If you are feeling decadent or entertaining, you can add a small dollop of butter on the very top, but it should taste great without.
  8. Bon appetit!
