DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the squash in half and carefully remove the seeds.
  • You might want to use a kitchen scissors to cut around the edge because you don't want to dig into the squash itself (which is easy to do).
  • Turn upside down in a baking pan.
  • Bake at 375-degrees until the inside is somewhat soft (about 45 minutes for this sized squash).
  • Let cool until the squash can be handled and then carefully remove the inside of the squash.
  • They will come out in threads that look and act much like cooked spaghetti (thus, the name).
  • There will be a much larger volume of strands than you think!
  • Cook several pieces of bacon very crisp and chop into bacon bits.
  • In a skillet, heat some olive oil and/or butter.
  • Add the spaghetti squash threads.
  • Toss with spices as desired and the bacon bits.
  • Heat through and serve.
