Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Oven-roasted spaghetti squash makes a unique side dish or light supper.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 °F (220 °C).
  2. Cut squash in half, lengthwise.
  3. Use a spoon to scrape out seeds and fibrous innards. Massage olive oil over the open halves and sprinkle evenly with the salt and pepper.
  4. Roast, cut half up, on a foil-lined baking sheet for 40-50 minutes, just until the vegetable begins to take on a little light brown color.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool until easily handled (about 30 minutes). Use a fork to gently scrape/pull the long strands away from the shell.
  6. Use strands as the base to a cold salad or reheat in microwave, if necessary, and stir lightly with fresh parmesan cheese and basil chiffonade for a light side-dish.
  7. Note: roast squash on the weekend and you've got a go-to for a quick turn-around lunch or dinner.

this looks so good, thank you for sharing! I will make it this weekend. I think I will do some zucchini spaghetti and use that.

I've made spaghetti squash many times before, while I haven't followed this exact recipe I can vouch for it's deliciousness. Very healthy and very good. Great with garlic also. Makes an excellent substitute for pasta.

I made this 2 days ago and it was excellent. I haven't had pasta in over 4 months and this satisfied my cravings. I put spaghetti sauce over it and topped it with mushrooms. I also had a small piece of veal.
