Ok let’s get started!
Take one Spaghetti Squash and cut in half length wise.
Scoop out the seeds (it kind of reminds me of carving a pumpkin!)
Brush the insides with Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Sprinkle with Sea Salt and Pepper.
Place Squash inside down on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes until the inside of the Squash pierces easily with a fork.
Flip the cooked Squash over.
Now the fun part, take a fork and start scraping the insides of the Squash.
I think it’s so cool to watch Spaghetti shaped ‘noodles’ being created from this. Hey it’s the little things right?
Now, you can serve this as is but it might be a little bland.
