This method is the quickest way to roast spaghetti squash. It takes just 30 minutes to cook (compared to 1 hour or more when cooking whole or halves) and it creates perfectly spaghetti-like strands!
Spaghetti squash! Are you a fan? I used to be take-it-or-leave it when it came to spaghetti squash, but the more I've tried it, the more I like it. I'll NEVER try to convince you that it's a direct substitute for real pasta – that would be a lie. It is, however, a healthy alternative to pasta and an awesome nutrition-packed veggie to add to your diet.
The only problem with spaghetti squash is that it can take a really, really long time to cook. You could, of course, microwave it for quicker results. But we don't have a microwave and I think the flavor of oven-roasted spaghetti squash is SO much better. Which is why we're gonna talk about the quickest way to cook spaghetti squash in your oven. 💁♀️ That's why you're here today, right?
How to Cook Spaghetti Squash FAST
Step 1 – Chop the squash in half lengthwise.
Step 2 – Scrape out the seeds and guts.
Step 3 – Place halves cut side down and slice horizontally. These slices should create half moons about ¾" to 1" thick.
Step 4 – Arrange half moons on a baking sheet and spritz with olive oil or cooking spray of choice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Step 5 – Bake 30 minutes, remove from oven, and use a fork to strip the "spaghetti" away from the squash rind.
See? SO easy. SO much quicker than roasting the spaghetti squash whole or in halves. And bonus! It helps to create longer, more spaghetti-like strands of squash which you can use a million different ways. 👇 👇 👇
