Making Spaghetti Squash is super easy and is a great lower calorie, gluten free option to regular pasta.
It’s so versatile, you can eat it as is or mix it in with your favorite sauces!
I actually did a tutorial on How to make Acorn Squash a while back which got me thinking… hmmm I need to make a tutorial for you guys on how to make Spaghetti Squash!
If you’re new to the blog, I actually have a whole ‘How To’ section that has different helpful hints and tips on how to make a variety of foods. I’d love for you to check it out!

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.
