Healthy Fall Recipe: Spaghetti Squash!

Spaghetti squash is one of my all time favorite vegetables to cook with! It's a pure vegetable, not processed or refined & it serves just like a pasta, making it delicious with your favorite healthy sauce, seasoned vegetables, &/or protein. & it's so simple to prepare!

  • 1 whole spaghetti squash
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Rinse or wipe & then dry the exterior of the squash.
  3. Use a fork to punch holes in the squash, scattered over the surface.
  4. Place the whole squash in a shallow baking dish, such as a large glass casserole.
  5. Bake it for 1 hour.
  6. Remove it from the oven & let it sit for about 5-10 minutes to cool a bit.
  7. Cut the squash in half. Use a large metal spoon to scoop the seed area out of each half.
  8. Sprinkle sea salt to each half. (optional)
  9. Use a fork to gently scrape the flesh of the squash; it will come off easily in thin spaghetti-like strips.
  10. Serve with your favorite flavorful sauce, vegetables, &/or protein. (I sometimes like to use just a little bit of olive oil to coat the "noodles" & a small amount of fresh parmesan cheese with garlic...yum!)
