Baked Spaghetti Squash


Spaghetti squash is a mild flavor squash and when cooked the flesh resembles noodles. Spaghetti squash can be cooked many ways, I chose to bake it. It is so easy to bake.

I know you're wondering and no it doesn't taste like a spaghetti noodle. The texture is similar to a noodle, the squash flavor is very mild. I think you do need to season it as you prefer to add some flavor. Healthy and delicious. I can be served a variety of ways.

Ingredients:
1 Spaghetti Squash
Olive Oil
1 tsp Parsley Flakes
Salt and Pepper to taste

Cut the squash lengthwise in half. You'll need a good kitchen knife for this. The shell is a little tough. Scoop out the seeds leaving the flesh in the shell.

Drizzle the squash flesh with a little olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Place the squash halves flesh (open side) down on a baking sheet. Bake in a 375 degree oven for one hour.


With the tines of a fork, scrape the flesh away from the shell. You'll notice it is very easy and how the squash ribbons into "noodles".


If you're serving the spaghetti squash on the plain side, drizzle with a little olive oil and salt and pepper and mix together. Add parsley flakes if you like.

I do serve this like I would spaghetti too with marinara sauce as pictured below too.


Try it with pesto or add some fresh grated cheese. It's a great vegetable side dish or can be the main course of a meal.
