Spaghetti Squash

I love to lighten things up, especially in the summer.  Spaghetti squash makes a wonderful side dish or a healthy swap for pasta.  If you want spaghetti squash that holds that “noodle” shape and have only been getting mush, this post is for you!

Place face down in a glass baking pan. The skin side should be up. Put one cup of water in the pan. Bake for 45 minutes.

Take the squash out of the oven and turn over. If you want the squash to be pasta like, cut in two inch strips, the short length of the squash, and use a spoon to run along the skin to remove the edible flesh of the squash.
