1. Washing spaghetti squash: Rinse it under cold water to remove dirt and debris. 2. Cutting spaghetti squash: Carefully cut the squash in half lengthwise. If it is too tough to cut, you can pierce it with a fork or microwave it for a couple of minutes to soften it. 3. Scoop Out the Seed Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds gently.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. To prevent sticking if you don't have parchment, coat the baking sheet with cooking spray or oil.
You can use any regular cooking oil to bake your spaghetti squash. Just don't use fancy finishing oils like walnut or pistachio oil. Because these mild taste oils taste is best for salads and drizzling but not for roasting.
Place your spaghetti squash halves cut side down on a baking sheet. Bake them in a preheated oven at 400°F for about 35 to 40 minutes.
You can season it with herbs like basil and oregano or a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. You can also enhance the flavours with garlic, parmesan cheese or a dash of red pepper flakes for some zing.
