How do you make spaghetti squash?

Lot’s of hype on spaghetti squash – but how in the world do you make it? It’s actually very very easy!

What you need:
1 spaghetti squash
Casserole dish (microwavable)
Knife
Water

What to do:
Cut lengthwise the spaghetti squash in half
Clean out seeds – don’t mess with sides just scrape the seeds from the middle
Place halves face down in the casserole dish
Fill with water about .5 to 1 inch so that the face of squash is covered
Microwave for 12 minutes – rotate dish half way through if your microwave doesn’t spin
Now when it’s done it will be VERY hot.
Let it cool and remove from dish and flip the squash face up on a plate. Using a fork, pull the inside of squash to the center and it will come off in little spaghetti strings!
Move these to your bowl and top with whatever you want!
