How To Perfectly Cook A Spaghetti Squash | Real. Simple. Vegan.
- 1 Spaghetti Squash
Preheat oven to 400℉ and cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper or tinfoil.
Cut the squash in half and scoop out the seeds.
Place squash face-down on a covered cookie sheet.
Cook for 40 minutes at 400℉.
Upon removing from the oven, flip the squash over so both halves are facing up to let the steam out for a few minutes to avoid watery 'pasta'.
After the steam has been let out, use a fork to scrape the sides of the squash. The 'noodles' will naturally tumble out into your bowl! It's almost too good to be true.
