How To Make Spaghetti Squash

This recipe will help you make perfectly cooked spaghetti squash. It’s very simple and flavorful despite using only olive oil, salt, and pepper to season.

Preparation: 5 minutes
Cooking: 40 minutes
Total: 45 minutes



  • 1squash,spaghetti
  • 2tspextra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper,to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean-up.

  2. Use a very sharp chef’s knife to cut off the tip-top and very bottom ends of the spaghetti squash. Stand the squash upright on a stable surface and carefully slice through it from top to bottom to divide it in half.

  3. Use a large spoon to scoop out the spaghetti squash seeds and discard them. Drizzle the insides of each squash half with 1 teaspoon olive oil and rub it all over the inside, adding more oil if necessary. Sprinkle salt and pepper lightly over the interiors of the squash, then place them cut-side down on the prepared baking sheet.

  4. Bake for 40 to 60 minutes, until the cut sides are turning golden and the interiors are easily pierced through with a fork.

  5. Once the squash is done baking, fluff the interiors with a fork to make the insides spaghetti-like. Serve as desired.
