  • Summary

    I prefer to under-bake the spaghetti squash just a bit, so it still retains just a slight crunch. Baking time really depends on how big your squash is - try to get the smallest one, especially if you’re only feeding 4 people. The spaghetti squash is ready if you can pierce the squash with a paring knife with little resistance. If you’re a garlic lover, don’t be shy - use more!For faster cooking, microwave the whole squash for 2-4 minutes (to soften enough to cut through thick skin). Cut lengthwise, scoop out seeds. Place squash cut-side down on baking sheet and roast for 30 minutes until tender.

    Ingredients

    • 1 small spaghetti squash (about 3-4 pounds)
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 2 cloves garlic (finely minced)
    • 1/4 cup finely minced parsley (or other fresh herb)
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
    • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
