Easy Spaghetti Squash Recipe

8 Nov

It’s Tuesday already! Where did Monday go? I had play-dates and party galore yesterday Fun, Fun! I had very little time to prepare dinner last night because of all my get-togethers, so I whipped out the Ol’ Spaghetti Squash for a quick, tasty meal!  Spaghetti is one of my favorite meals, so when I heard about a spaghetti squash awhile back I was immediately intrigued! “I’ve gotta buy one and cook it pronto,” I thought! I did just that, and Mr. Spaghetti Squash has been a frequent guest on my dinner plate ever since!

Easy Baked Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti Squash

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Garlic Salt





Set oven to 400 degrees. Then slice your clean Spaghetti squash in half. This takes a little patience, because the rolly little bugger can get away from you if your not careful.

I have found, it's best to insert the top of the knife, and then rock back toward you!

Now for the slimy part…scoop out all the seeds and other goop with a spoon and toss it!

Drizzle olive oil generously over the inside of each half of the squash. Then add basil, garlic salt, and  oregano.

Flip the Squash face down on a baking dish and bake for 45 minutes to and hour, depending on how large your squash is.

I wait until the top of the squash is a little brown.

See how it gets nice and brown on top!

Flip the squash over after you take it out of the oven. Take a fork and start to scrape the sides of the squash!

Vuwa-lah! It looks like Spaghetti huh!?

You can serve it with added olive oli and salt, or with your favorite homemade marinara!
