    Never cooked sketti squash before, not sure I've ever had it. Would love some more details on how you cooked it all. Looks delish.

    I have cooked spaghetti Squash. I cut it in half, scraped out the seeds, brushed with olive oile and cooked at 350 or so until it felt tender poked with a fork. Then just scrape it out of the shell with a fork and serve. You could add some butter and/or parm chesse like I did if you want to.

    Another way to tell doneness is to see the flesh separating from the skin of the squash. Roast it after cutting in half and brush with EVOO or butter after scooping out the junk(like any gourd). You can fill this cavity with aromatics or saute and mix them in after shredding. Don't put any acidic foods in while roasting, because it will ruin the "spaghetti" texture and make everything mushy. Roast @350-375 for 30-40 minutes.

    Otherwise, poke a bunch of holes in it with a fork or skewer and bake whole @ 375 for around an hour.

    It makes a great low-carb alternative to pasta for those that are looking for those types of recipes.
  • Basically I cooked it like everyone here suggested. Cut in half, de-seed, brush with olive oil, s & p. grilled face down direct at about 400 to get some char. After it had some good marks I moved it to foil still face down and cooked another 20-30 minutes until the outer shell was soft and pliable. Then just scrape out the flesh. Was really fantastic with the broth from the pouch of clams, veges, spices, and wine and is a nice, healthy alternative to traditional pasta. Made the lady very happy.
