Spaghetti Squash

Perfect substitute to the ordinary wheat spaghetti or macaroni. Spaghetti squash is low in calories, carbs and sugars. Makes a great addition as a side dish.
Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 40 mins
Yields: 6 Servings


1 medium spaghetti or orangetti squash (about 2-3 pounds)


Preheat the oven to 400 F. Slice the squash in half lengthwise from the stem to the tail. Remove any seeds. Place the squash on a baking sheet, cut-side down. Cover loosely with aluminum to minimize over roasting. Cook for 35 - 40 minutes or until the squash flesh is tender and separate easily. Scrape off the squash with a fork. Gently pull the flesh from the skin and separate into strands to resemble spaghetti. Serve immediately.
