How to Bake Spaghetti Squash

When baked, spaghetti squash shreds into thin, stringy pieces that you work great as a pasta substitute. Serve it hot or cold and dress it with your favorite sauce or simply with butter or olive oil and a little salt and pepper. Don't let spaghetti squash's size intimidate you -- the toughest part will be cutting it in half!

    Step 2: CUT THE SQUASH
    Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Cut the raw spaghetti squash in half lengthwise with a sharp, sturdy knife. (Be careful cutting the squash — it's hard and rolls around easily!)

    Start by cutting off the stem. Next, place your knife in the middle of the squash and press straight down with your knife. Then, pull the knife down, cutting one side in half. Repeat that step to cut through the other half of the squash.
