How I cook my spaghetti squash is to make sure to poke holes in the squash. I didn't poke the holes deep enough and the end of the squash exploded all over the side of the microwave. Anyway, I put it in the microwave cook it for 10 to 20 minutes depending on the size. Pull it out of the microwave, cut it in half, scrape out the seeds and then the spaghetti squash and go for your dish. I made a pretty mean spaghetti squash alfredo and it sure was tasty. Just one way to cut down on carbs. 3545 days ago
It wasn't me who made the video, but I make a pretty good spaghetti squash. First I cut the squash in half, lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds, Then I put the halfs upside down on a dinner plate and microwave it for about 10 minutes - until it feels soft when you poke it with a fork. Using a fork, I scrape out the squash pulp into "spagetti" strands. A little margarine (or olive oil, if you prefer) a little salt and pepper and some grated parmesan cheese shirred in and you're ready to eat.
Another way is to cut and scoop the seeds, then put a little butter, salt and pepper in the "bowl" of the squash. Cover with foil and bake on a cookie sheet til sofe. 15-20 minutes at 350 should do it.
It's so easy... just slice the spaghetti squash in half up the middle vertically. I bake mine in the oven, but I'm sure it would be ok to nuke. So, I cook it, turned upside down in an 8x8 pan with a little water in the bottom so it doesn't burn, maybe 45 min. and when you can run a fork through it, take it out and run the fork through it vertically and it will separate into little strings like spaghetti, all the way back to the crust. I recently had it at a supper out!! I usually just put a couple TBSP of basil and some spaghetti sauce over it... YUM. Very low calories too. Enjoy
p.s. probably check out Spark Recipes for an actual recipe. Maybe Chef MEg did the video?? 3545 days ago
