Are you a fan of spaghetti squash? I am a pretty new fan. Here is the easiest way I have found to cook it and once you do the possibilities are endless, really!

Microwave your uncut spaghetti squash for about 3 minutes for a smallish one and maybe 4 or 5 for a bigger one. Allow to cool for a bit and then slice down the middle. It is very hard to cut without the microwave step.

Then, the microwave also has made the cleaning out process easier. With a spoon, dig out all of the seeds.

Pour a bit of olive oil and add salt and pepper to each half and then put cut side down on a cookie sheet lined with foil. Cook for about 30 minutes at 375.

When you take it out, you should be able to easily create “spaghetti” with a fork.

Follow Allie.Carte.Dishes on Instagram! She said to add a wedge of laughing cow to create an alfredo taste.

It is amazing! I then added some cajun spice, cooked chicken, and broccoli. I can’t wait to make this dish again.

I have also had a burrito bowl this week:

I have really been taking the time to marinate my chicken lately. You can just throw spices and olive oil in a bag or you can use a packet of taco seasoning or this:

I really like this mojito lime packet.

Erica made us a grilled chicken spinach strawberry salad with feta. She just brought olive oil and balsamic vinegar to dress it. Yum!

Let me know if you try the spaghetti squash!

  1. I really am not a fan; I’ve tried to convince myself I like it and have used it often in place of spaghetti but find it just has a weird texture to me that I can’t get over. I am much happier eating my whole grain pasta/spaghetti.

    1. Lol! I used to feel that way but I think I wasn’t cooking it long enough. Also I may have steamed it. Roasting face down in oven really creates a better flavor!

  2. Mmmmm, spaghetti squash is yummy. I’m a red sauce kind of girl, so I make a regular spaghetti sauce with deer meat (hunter husband) and lots of veggies.

    1. Venison! I’m sure it’s good but I would feel like I’m eating Bambi’s mom. I am anxious to try it with a red sauce and a homemade chicken sausage!

  3. We both love spaghetti squash with a red sauce! Don’t get me wrong, nothing is a better carby comfort than real pasta, but spaghetti squash is a delicious substitute and gets you more veggies.
