Tobins' Tastes: Finally Trying Spaghetti Squash

Finally Trying Spaghetti Squash


I have been wanting to make our own spaghetti squash for a really long time. I first tried it at my friend Carrie's wedding and I was amazed at how good it was. We finally got around to making it this week and it was as good as I remembered. It is also something that you can make a lot of different ways so I am looking forward to making it again soon.

We had to look around to find spaghetti squash at a decent price. We ended up buying ours at a local vegetable stand because they had the freshest looking squash and the best prices.

Here is how we did it:

  1. Cut your squash in half. It was really hard to cut but chopping off the ends made it a little easier.


2. Clean out the seeds and the insides with a spoon.


3. Brush insides with olive oil and I seasoned mine with Italian seasonings. You can also season with a little brown sugar.


4. Roast for 45 mins to an hour at 400 degrees. Edges will probably get golden brown and the insides should pull away easily with a fork.


5. Use a fork to shred/pull the insides away from the skin. They should form spaghetti like strands.


6. We tossed ours with a little butter, olive oil, Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese.


Serve warm. Enjoy!
