Roasted Spaghetti Squash (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

When I first thought about making spaghetti squash, I never could have imagined how easy it was. This recipe is virtually impossible to mess up- and that my friends, is a great recipe to have.

Cut the squash in half lengthwise.

Using an ice cream scooper or spoon, scoop out the inside of the squash, seeds and all. Set the seeds aside to roast those separately, if you wish. They taste similar to pumpkin seeds.

Brush the halves with a little olive oil, around 1/2 teaspoon per half. Season with salt and pepper.

On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place the squash halves, cut side down.

Bake for about 45 minutes, and remove from oven. Flip the squash halves cut side up again, and it should be browned and steaming hot. Poke it with a fork a bit to make sure it’s fully cooked. It should be stringy and soft.

If the squash is cooked and ready, start scraping the squash flesh with a fork, over and over.

Continue with each half until all of the squash is in spaghetti like strands. You can season the squash and eat it directly out of the skin if you wish, or transfer it to a bowl. In this case, I added some fresh marinara sauce to make it a complete meal.

You could eat spaghetti squash in so many different ways. Top it with chili, beans, stews, and all types of different sauces, pestos, etc. It also goes very well with my Creamy Cauliflower Pasta Sauce. Yum!!
