Your favorite marinara or meat sauce.



Poke 8-10 large holes in spaghetti squash with a sharp knife.
Place on glass dish and microwave for 12-14 minutes.
Let sit for at least 5 minutes to cool.
Cut in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds and guts.
Scrape with a fork to loosen “spaghetti” strands.

Top with your favorite sauce.  Or, toss with melted butter, salt, and pepper to season. YUM! Serve with a side salad and your favorite garlic bread. You won’t even miss the pasta!

  1. We are spaghetti squash lovers at our house, too! The first time we had it, we were a little hesitant, but each time we eat it we love it even more! I haven’t tried making it in the microwave yet–so far I’ve only baked it in the oven. The microwave would be a lot faster, though!
