Perfect Spaghetti Squash?

I used to LOVE my pasta! Spaghetti squash saved the day as a healthy and low cal substitute in our spaghetti! You can use it with pesto, tomato or any of your favorite sauces. Our favorite is to make a tomato meat sauce or tomato sauce and meatballs with it. No, it is not the exact same as pasta, but it's pretty darn good, especially considering it is a VEGETABLE :)

I remember purchasing my first spaghetti squash and letting it sit there on the counter for a week because I had NO IDEA what to do with it. Turns out it's easy!

1 whole spaghetti squash

Cut small slits in squash.
Place whole spaghetti squash in microwave for 8 minutes.
Cut squash in half.
Remove seeds with spoon.
Rake squash out with a fork along the length of the squash.
Top with your favorite sauce.

Another option:
Cut spaghetti squash in half (which is VERY hard to do and why I prefer the above method)
Place in bowl with shallow water.
Cook for about 5 minutes.
Repeat with other half.
Scrape out just as before :)
