I know there are many recipes out there when preparing your spaghetti squash, but there is a simple way to have your ready in minutes, rather than hours.
- Cut it in half – short ways.
- scoop out the seeds.
- put it face down in a bowl. cover with Saran Wrap.
- Microwave for 6 minutes. I used to put water in the bottom to steam it, but its already full of water and you don’t need it.
- When you take it out, the bowl is going to be really hot. Have a napkin or mit ready. When you check to see if it’s done, your fork should easily peel out the strands. If it comes out gushy, it might’ve been in for too long, but it’s still good. If you have a hard time getting the strands out, then cover it for another minute or so.
1 squash is enough for a whole family. We are some big eaters here, so Shaun will go for seconds with the 2nd half. If you’re cooking for two, you can put the 2nd half in the microwave just in case you want seconds, or let it cool and store it in the fridge for a meal another day.
