Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings 4 (serving sizes will vary)


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


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Use a large, sharp knife to cut off both ends of the squash.
  • Cut the squash in half length-wise.
  • Use a spoon to scoop out all the seeds from each half.
  • 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.
  • Brush a layer of olive oil on the fleshy side of each half and add a little kosher salt and pepper.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Place in a serving dish and season to taste. Enjoy!
