DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the squash and leave it wet. Microwave it for 5 minutes to help soften the skin (it's still really hard).
  • Cut squash lengthwise and remove seeds.
  • To Microwave: put squash halves cut side down in baking dish in 1/4 cup of water covered with plastic. Nuke it for 7-10 minutes.
  • To Bake: put squash halves cut side down in baking dish in 1/4 cup of water and bake for 45 minutes covered with foil. Don't let the water cook away. Check it and add more if needed.
  • After it's cooled slightly, scrape out the veggie strands with a fork and season with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and parmesan cheese or proceed with another spaghetti squash recipe.
