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!


  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • olive oil spray (or other cooking spray of choice)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (more or less as desired)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper (more or less as desired)


  1. Preheat oven to 375º. Chop the squash in half lengthwise. Scrape out the seeds and guts.
  2. Place halves cut side down and slice horizontally. These slices should create half moons about 3/4" to 1" thick.
  3. Arrange half moons on a parchment-lined baking sheet and spritz with olive oil or cooking spray of choice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake 30 minutes, remove from oven, and use a fork to strip the "spaghetti" away from the squash rind.


You can add any seasonings that you like to the squash before cooking. I like to add Italian seasoning, garlic, cayenne, chipotle, etc. depending on what I'll be using the spaghetti squash for.
