Spaghetti Squash Bake

Introduction

If you never had spaghetti squash, you are in for a treat! It looks like a really large yellow squash, and when it’s raw, it looks like pumpkin. It has the thick skin and gooey inside with seeds. But, if you bake it, the flesh can be pulled apart into spaghetti-like strands. It’s a little crunchier than pasta and there's a variety of ways to make this dish!

Ingredients

    Spaghetti Squash, 5-6 pounds
    Cinnamon, ground, 4 tbsp
    Butter, salted, 3 tbsp
    Nutmeg, ground, 2 tsp
    Garlic, 3 cloves minced
    Brown Sugar, 3 tsp unpacked

Directions

Heat oven to 425 degrees

Cut the spaghetti squash into two halfs. **It's like cutting into a pumpkin, so be careful. Scoop out the seeds.

Place halves on a baking sheet with the cut side down. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour & 15 minutes.

Spaghetti squash should be tender and easily removed with a fork. If some parts seem tough, put back into oven.

Remove inside of squash with a fork. This should be easy. The inner's are like spaghetti and it will be easy to remove from skin.

Place in a pan or bowl. Add butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, minced garlic and brown sugar. Stir and enjoy!

You'll be surprised how much comes out of the squash. This is very tasty!

5-6 pounds = about 8 to 10 servings

  • First time trying spaghetti squash. While I wasn't too excited over this dish (too much cinnamon I think), my girls both ate it without complaining. It was definitely interesting. - 12/16/09
