  • This can be either baked in the oven or cooked in the microwave. For both methods, poke several holes in squash to release steam as it cooks. Cook for about 15 minutes in the microwave until completely soft. Also you can bake in the oven at 375 F for about 45-55 minutes until cooked through.
  • Let squash cool a bit. Cut in half, remove seeds and scoop out spaghetti. Place in a large bowl and discard seeds.
  • Toss with olive oil, cheese, garlic salt & pepper.

  1. Thanks for sharing this delicious looking recipe! Where did you get your adorable pink lunch container and the cute little containers from?

  2. This. Was. Delicious. I’ve never had, bought or even SEEN a spaghetti squash. So when I saw this recipe, it seemed like a good “intro” dish. And then I saw the spaghetti squash at the store and jumped on it!! So yummy. So easy. And so healthy :)
