Roasted Spaghetti Squash

 

My family is having a pasta salad tonight (yum!) but since I really shouldn’t eat it as I am gluten intolerant, I chose to make this. I love how versatile spaghetti squash is. It stands up on its own and goes well with so many things.

Get a sharp knife and cut the squash lengthwise. If your knife isn’t sharp enough, it does take a bit of work to do this. Take the middle pulp and seeds out and save for later. Trust me, you want to do this!

Spread the oil mixture onto the squash. The smell is amazing when it hits the spaghetti squash! Turn each half over on the sheet and bake.

While that’s baking, seperate the pulp and the squash seeds and roast them like pumpkin seeds. I may have eaten some…

Scrape out the squash and serve. The smell of this fills the house and makes your mouth water!
