Welcome to spaghetti squash 101, the illustrated tutorial on how to bake this type of squash properly. I personally almost gave up on spaghetti squash after my first attempt at making it myself. I cut it the wrong way and didn’t get anything remotely close to spaghetti. After a little bit of research, I realized I had cut it the wrong way and that it could easily be fixed. I gave it another shot and have been hooked ever since! This method will give you the longest strands and the best texture every time. Bon appétit!


Total time: 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • a drizzle of olive oil

Directions:

    1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
    2. Cut the squash in half widthwise. This will make the strands much longer!

Ingrédients

  • 1 courge spaghetti
  • un filet d’huile d’olive

Etapes:

  1. Préchauffez votre four à 190°C.
  2. Coupez la courge en deux dans le sens de la largeur. Cela rend les “spaghettis” plus longs.
