Yep, simple spaghetti squash! Really only four steps and you will be eating a Clean alternative to pasta.
Step One: Prepare your squash.
Wash off your squash with a good fruit & veggie wash. Rinse well. Pat dry with towel. Pierce skin with a knife in several places.
Step Two: Cook your squash.
Place entire squash — do not cut in 1/2— onto a rimmed baking sheet. Cook at 375°F for 1 hour 30 minutes. Flip it over 1/2 through cooking time to ensure it cooks throughly. Cooking is done when you can easily pierce with a knife.
Step Three: Turn your cooked squash into a veggie noodle.
Cut your slightly cooled squash in half lengthwise. Scoop/scrape out seeds & discard. Use a fork to shred the squash. This part takes the least bit of effort. It usually just falls apart into noodle-like strands.
Step Four: Eat your squash.
Place squash noodles on a plate or in a bowl and top with your favorite sauce. I prefer mine with a yummy basil spaghetti sauce and ground turkey meatballs.
Oh, forgot about Step Five. This step only pertains to those with kids.
