My favorite way to prepare spaghetti squash in the oven!



  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper
  • Optional: butter, garlic salt, grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Use a large, sharp knife to cut off both ends of the squash.
  3. Cut the squash in half length-wise.
  4. Use a spoon to scoop out all the seeds from each half.
  5. Place the halves in a baking dish side by side with as snug a fit as you can manage, cut side up. simply because it makes removing them from the dish easier after they’re cooked.
  6. Brush a layer of olive oil on the fleshy side of each half and add a little kosher salt and pepper.
  7. Cover with foil and bake for about an hour. If you want it more tender, stick it back in the oven for another 15 minutes.
  8. Once you remove the dish from the oven and let the squash cool enough for you to handle, use a fork to scrape out the fresh lengthwise.
  9. Place in a serving dish and season to taste. Enjoy!
